Love to Assume McGill AD role; Lauzon out as Carleton Women's Coach

Another story from this morning's Charlatan (Carleton's campus newspaper) which touches on a report tabled by Carleton's Competitive Sport Review Committee Carleton Gives Eight Varsity Teams the Axe

Wayne Kondro breaks an exciting set of stories in this morning's Ottawa Citizen, beginning with the departure from Carleton of Athletic Director Drew Love, the architect of bringing the CIS men's basketball nationals to the National Capital region for the next 3 seasons. As well, Carleton announced that women's head coach Christie Lauzon will not return next season and that a number of sports have been downgraded to club status from varsity status. Speculation in the article has former uOttawa athletic administrator Jennifer Brenning, the current Associate Athletic Director at Carleton, as the leading candidate to replace Love as Carleton's AD. Here are some links:
