Utah Furloughs Entire Athletic Department


Recommended Posts


The University of Utah athletic department will implement department-wide furloughs, including athletic director Mark Harlan, football coach Kyle Whittingham and men's basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak, Harlan said in a radio interview Friday.

"We've had to make some tough decisions because you can't wait for what might not happen," Harlan told ESPN 700 host Bill Riley.

The decision comes with the department facing a financial shortfall that Harlan previously estimated could range from $50-60 million, due to cancellations and postponements from the coronavirus pandemic. Harlan tweeted that all staff and coaches will stagger the furloughs, which will last for a minimum of one week to as many as eight, through the rest of 2020. Head coaches and Harlan will furlough for two weeks, but it's not clear when those will take place.


I thought this would happen at those G5 schools that had cancelled fall sports and it has happened at some FCS schools that have had their fall sports cancelled, but a P5 school? Is Colorado next?
