UNCW chancellor to announce sports decision Thursday

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller plans to announce tomorrow his decision about whether to cut sports programs from the school’s athletic department.

Miller will hold a news conference at 8 a.m. to announce his decision about the report that recommended eliminating five programs from UNCW’s athletics department, according to a university spokeswoman. A committee Miller commissioned earlier this year to examine the athletic department recommended the school cut men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s cross country, men’s indoor track and softball

Miller’s announcement will come just before the UNCW Board of Trustees is scheduled to meet for a special meeting at 9 a.m. in the Warwick Center Ballroom on campus. The Board of Trustees was scheduled to discuss the committee’s reports.

WWAY has also learned Miller has reportedly been meeting this week with student-athletes for their feedback on the recommendations.
