Duqesne AD Comes Out of Hiding, Admits Title IX Connection to Men’s Athletic Cuts
Duquesne Athletic Director Greg Amodio finally came out of hiding yesterday to take questions from the press concerning the four men’s sports the school eliminated earlier this week. And when the time came to face the press, Amodio told a story that’s all too familiar to folks who have seen their programs destroyed:
“We took a good, hard look at that and wanted to make sure we fit the mold of Title IX for years to come,” he said. “We worked with an outside consultant, nationally respected on Title IX issues, and all of our initiatives have been approved.”
The lesson here is pretty clear: if you’re a male athlete and your school ever hires a Title IX consultant, you might want to keep your bags packed.
