Speculation on the University of Montana campus for the past several hours has indicated that the administration has relieved athletic director Jim O'Day and Griz football coach Robin Pflugrad of their duties as of this morning. The Indy got a phone tip on the rumor around 10 a.m., and quickly followed the progression of the news on Twitter. UM announced it will release a statement within the hour.
The Missoulian reported the news as confirmed based on an email sent to staff by assistant athletic director Greg Sundberg this morning. The Indy will post additional news as UM releases more information.
