Oblivion? So in an epic battle, #337 beat #330 at home. (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/ncaab/sagarin/)

Speaking of epic comparisons:

UNH Women's Hockey 2010-2014 47-77-11
UNH Men's Basketball 2010-2014 40-77

Truth be told, I have to think Coach Umile might be absorbing a little less than the usual amount of "heat" than he might otherwise be absorbing (to date and/or in the upcoming offseason months), considering that his boss has turned into a virtual "human heat shield" since Coach McCloskey's dismissal. And if Coach Umile can get the team to Boston, it could be a relatively tranquil offseason for him, lounging around the "cool kids pool" with Coach MacDonnell, while BB35 and Coach Herrion spend their time in the "hot seat". :)

A part-time member of the University of New Hampshire's athletic staff has been fired due to "allegations of misconduct" involving student athletes.

The university announced the move in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

The statement said the school's administration was notified about 10 days about allegations of misconduct by a part-time member of the athletic department and immediately initiated an investigation.

"The staff member was placed on administrative leave and subsequently terminated," the statement reads. "The University of New Hampshire takes any and all allegations of misconduct by a member of our community very seriously. While we cannot talk about the specifics of ongoing police investigations, UNH is cooperating fully with all law enforcement agencies."

The school did not disclose the nature of the misconduct. The university said it is providing affected students with support and has offered counseling to them.

"We will stand by them as a community and their well-being remains our top priority," the statement reads. "We have learned from the experiences of other institutions and our own."

Allegations and you fire the person....Interesting, as that sets up the school for wrongful termination if they are not true.

Correct me if I'm wrong but in NH you don't need a reason to fire someone. You can get fired because your boss doesn't like the color of your shirt.

The UNH Athletic Department sounds like a really *interesting* place to work nowadays.

Talk about coming to work, never knowing what to expect. Other than losing your job, of course.

Interesting to see BB35 hasn't hung the alleged perpetrator out to dry in the media (yet). Lessons learned? :rolleyes:

Not to dismiss the allegations out of hand without having a little more info to draw conclusions with ... but is anyone else getting any modern day "Salem Witch Hunt" vibes off of this whole situation yet? :eek:

It is called "at will" employment and it is legal in all states except Montana. An employer, based on their company policy, can get rid of you at any time. Of course, if you have a contract with them I believe cause is needed to void the contract.

Hence the difference between Coach McCloskey (contract employee) and the part-timer (at will, no doubt).

Not only Durham police involved.

DURHAM – Complaints of misconduct against a fired University of New Hampshire men's basketball director involve allegations that he may have engaged in "voyeurism" during a game at the University of Vermont in January, a UVM police official said.

Scott A. Weitzell is at the center of a joint criminal investigation involving UNH and UVM police. He was arrested by Newmarket police Feb. 21 on charges he tried to hide his cellphone from authorities and resisted arrest.

UNH officials have said little about the investigation, but the allegations stem from a UNH men's basketball game against the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vt., on Jan. 20, according to UVM Deputy Chief Tim Bilodeau.

Bilodeau said his department was contacted by UNH police a couple of weeks ago and told that they were investigating an athletic staff member from the basketball team who may have been involved in "voyeurism" in the men's basketball locker room.

According to Bilodeau, the complaint involved only UNH athletes who played in the game at UVM.

The 50-year-old Weitzell was director of operations for UNH men's basketball and has since been terminated from the job.

Meanwhile, UNH Police Chief Paul Dean confirmed that Weitzell was arrested during the execution of a search warrant at his Newmarket home.

"Weitzell is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation into allegations of invasion of privacy by the UNH Police Department," Dean said this morning.

Weitzell, of 75 Elm St., Newmarket, was charged with attempting to falsify physical evidence and resisting arrest or detention.

"There's an active criminal investigation involving Mr. Weitzell at this time. Therefore, we will not be making further comment at this time," Newmarket police Lt. Kyle True said.

Weitzell was released on $3,000 personal recognizance bail and was ordered to stay away from the UNH campus unless he's accompanied by a police officer. He was also ordered to have no contact with any staff, employees or athletes at UNH.

UNH has scheduled a news conference at the police department for today at 4 p.m.

UNH spokesman Erika Mantz confirmed that Weitzell was a part-time staff member and that he is no longer employed. Weitzell indicated in court paperwork that he worked in the athletics department for the past 12 years.

In a statement issued Monday, UNH said only that a staff member had been fired over misconduct allegations involving student athletes and that UNH police were investigating.

According to the Newmarket police complaints filed at the Brentwood Circuit Court, Weitzell is accused of concealing his cellphone "with the purpose to impair its verity or availability while it was the subject of a search warrant and criminal investigation." Police also allege that he refused to place his hands behind his back when he was arrested at his home.
At this point, Weitzell has not been charged by UVM police.

Don't worry folks. Our AD has been around the block a few times in his 35 years in college athletics, and knows what he's doing. I'm 100% confident he will sort this all out immediately. After all, you can't blame him for this one ... the alleged perp has been around for 12 years ferchrissakes, he obviously came in under someone else's ... (doing quick math, scratching head) ... oops, never mind ... :eek:

Chuck, I get that you don't like Marty... That's clear, and BTW! I'm no huge fan either!! :-)

But please explain what you're insinuating he did wrong here?

1. Guy was fired immediately
2. Press was notified (and unlike with Coach M, probably with appropriate language in the statement this time)

So, are you suggesting the behavior should have been caught in the last 12 years and he is such a nincompoop that he missed all the signs? Are you saying he was aware and complicit?

I'm honestly confused.

The incident happened on Jan. 20th...the senior administration just found out about this according to Huddleston's statement. This is likely going to cost Marty his job. No doubt in my mind.
