Holley Takes A Stand, Alleges Wrongful Termination

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Brooklyn College Men’s Assistant Basketball Coach William Holley was let go by Brooklyn College Athletics on Thursday, Feb. 21, reportedly due to events following an e-mail sent to CUNYAC and the CCNY Athletic Director.

Holley was suspended, and subsequently fired after sending an e-mail to the CUNY commissioner and the City College of New York Athletics Director, Lydia Travis. The e-mail consisted of his thoughts on a last-second schedule change, making the point that these athletes are NCAA Division Three athletes who have lives outside of basketball, and that a sudden schedule change was unfair.
