Word on campus this morning is that both UM Grizzlies football coach Robin Pflugrad and director of athletics, Jim O'Day were let go.

“It is with great sadness that I inform you all that this morning our Athletic Director, Jim O'Day and Head Football Coach Robin Pflugrad were released of their duties as of 8:00 a.m. this morning.  It will be a very difficult time for all of us in the coming days and I would ask that you stay positive. As more information comes out, I will be sure to let you know.  At this point and time this is all that I know.” said athletic director assistant Greg Sundberg.

Pflugrad wrapped up his second season at UM with an 11-3 record and was honored as the 2011 Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year. Back in 2005 O'Day was named athletic director by UM President George Dennison.
