Athletic Director Steve Cobb no longer with UAA

Just a little over a month ago UAA announced the dismissal of former hockey coach Dave Shyiak. Now, after a vote of no confidence and many other negative implications, UAA's Athletic Director Steve Cobb has been let go as well. This came shortly after a letter from Governor Sean Parnell expressed his dissatisfaction with how UAA has been handling the recruitment of a new hockey coach, and recent allegations of player abuse.
