Since it isn't a revenue sport, this won't get as much publicity as the mess at Rutgers did. But the AD needs to be fired for ignoring this abuse and, quite frankly, the president should be fired too for supporting him.

 

Utah 'failed' its student-athletes, so why does AD Chris Hill keep his job?

 

An investigation into allegations of abuse within the University of Utah swimming program has ended, and school president David Pershing declared Tuesday that athletic director Chris Hill is the right man to lead the school's athletic program forward.


What the report that landed on Pershing's desk portrays, however, is Hill's astonishing abdication of responsibility over the course of several years. Pershing has judged Hill worthy of keeping his job, but it's hard to read this report with clear eyes and conclude Hill did anything other than turn a blind eye to a worsening situation that threatened the welfare of student-athletes at Utah.

Can we have a "Shocking News" category on the forum for news stories likes this? Seriously, when is it going to stop. Like BMore said, won't get the pub because it's swimming (which speaks to an even bigger problem), but this is just absurd.
