The president of the University of Saskatchewan has issued a public apology for its handling of the announcement that Huskies football coach Brian Towriss was stepping down.
On Dec. 19, the university announced Towriss was ending his 33-year career as the head coach of the Saskatchewan Huskies football team.
U of S president Peter Stoicheff released a statement on Tuesday apologizing for the way it shared the news, saying it had raised questions from the community.
“I want to apologize publicly for the handling of that announcement,” said Stoicheff in a statement published on the Huskies’ website.
“Huskie supporters and alumni, our current student athletes and coaching staff deserved a far better communication and celebration of BT’s longstanding commitment to excellence here.”
