Santa Fe New Mexican - - SPORTS -

ANN AR­BOR, Mich. — The Univer­sity of Michi­gan ended its re­la­tion­ship with for­mer USA gym­nas­tics ex­ec­u­tive Rhonda Faehn on Sun­day, three days after she agreed to work as a coach­ing con­sul­tant for the women’s team.

“I have come to the con­clu­sion that it is not in the best in­ter­est of the Univer­sity of Michi­gan and our ath­letic pro­gram to con­tinue the con­sult­ing con­tract with Rhonda Faehn,” ath­letic di­rec­tor Warde Manuel said in a state­ment. “It was the wrong de­ci­sion, and I apol­o­gize. Our stu­dent-ath­letes are our high­est pri­or­ity and I want to do ev­ery­thing in my power to sup­port them fully and put the fo­cus back on their ath­letic per­for­mance.”
