    Another incompetent Athletic Director making a poor decision.

    Just saw this article today. As a former player the firing of Coach Clune goes against all the Allegheny stands for. Betsy Mitchell has begun to systematically dismantle the AC sports department. She continues to fire well seasoned, respected head coaches and replaces them with woefully inexperienced coaches, most of whom have never been a head coach ANYWHERE. Ms. Mitchell has not once explained to current or past players why Rob was let go. She had maintained her silence and this has prevented Rob from being able to secure a job elsewhere. Betsy has made it appear as though Rob was fired for some nefarious reason, instead of just coming out and say she doesn’t like Coach Clune. All current and former Alleghenians need to dig deeper into the decisions that Ms. Mitchell is making. She appears to be way in over her head as AD of AC. She has continued to show a lack of professionalism in the way she has handled this situation. I truly believe that AC needs to replace Ms. Mitchell. Do yourself a favor and google Betsy Mitchell/Rob Clune and read some of the articles about this situation. Many former players and current professors are extremely angry about this.

    In every article about the coach’s firing, both in The Campus and in other publications like the Meadville Tribune, all Betsy Mitchell, players and Coach Clune himself have ever alluded to is that it is a personal and private matter and they have chosen not to release the full details of his release.
