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.
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.
