UPEI athletics review completed, file in hands of university official

Published on July 15, 2014

A review of UPEI’s athletic department was filed Tuesday with the university’s vice-president of administration.

Jackie Podger was reviewing the document and no further details were available.

Dave (Hermie) MacNeill conducted the month-long review.

Lyall Huggan, the past president of the basketball teams booster club, called for a review after women’s basketball head coach Greg Gould resigned for professional reasons in early June.

Podger told The Guardian the university was planning a review before Gould’s resignation.

MacNeill coached the UPEI women’s basketball team from 1978 to 1993 and from 1990 to 1991, is a former executive director of Sport P.E.I. and was the chief executive officer of operations for the 2009 Canada Games.
