The article says “for cause” but I’m not really sure what the cause is.

Well the article points out several NCAA violations, that is enough to start with.

This article shares my sentiment that while there were NCAA violations they were pretty ticky-tac. Enough to get fired over? If he was 27-5 no chance but since he was 5-27 I guess so.

That's how I see it. An excuse to move on from him.


Eric Curry STILL makes me sad.

I don't want to start another thread for this, so I'll just tuck it in here.
UI law school, former dean face gender, race discrimination lawsuit
https://www.idahostatesman.com/news/pol ... 68303.html
A black female University of Idaho law professor has filed a lawsuit against the university, its law school and a former dean alleging race and gender discrimination and retaliation.

According to the complaint filed June 19 in Boise federal court, Shaakirrah Sanders joined the UI College of Law as a tenure-track associate professor in 2011. She earned tenure in 2016. She is the only professor of color and woman of color who has earned tenure or the rank of full professor in the law school.

After Mark L. Adams became law school dean in 2014, Sanders claims he began a “pattern of disparate terms and conditions” of her employment. When she raised concerns, she says he and the law school began retaliating against her.

I am sure about this time many in the Vandal Village are hoping for a "quiet phase."
