ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) — Oakland University athletic director Tracy Huth is leaving his position at the end of the month.
Huth says it’s been “amazing” to witness the growth of the school and its athletic program, but it’s time for a new chapter in his life.
Huth has spent over 30 years at Oakland as an athlete, coach and administrator.
Oakland has been involved in a legal dispute with former women’s basketball coach Beckie Francis, who was fired in June and sued the school to get specific information on the firing. Officials at the Detroit-area school have said that Francis physically and emotionally abused players, obsessed about their weight and pushed Christian beliefs on them. Francis’s lawyer has called the accusations of abuse a smear.
