The intercollegiate athletic program at Kuyper, which as 245 students, will close June 30, 2015, ending participation in men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, men's soccer and women's volleyball. The full-time athletic director and part-time coaches all will lose their jobs.
According to the MLive report, the decision came after a year-long review looking at
"the college's mission alignment, enrollment, student interest and their experiences within those programs, said Ken Capisciolto, vice president for advancement."
Basketball coach Stan Jesky told MLive that the announcement of the decision "was just out of the blue."
