Robin Pflugrad Fired: Ex-Montana Coach Not Speaking About Dismissal Yet

With details trickling out over Montana's dismissal of football head coach Robin Pflugrad and athletic director Jim O'Day, neither ex-university employee has yet to speak about their firing in any great detail. Pflugrad did acknowledge being relieved of his duties after the Missoulian attempted to contact him.

O'Day, according to the Missoulian, sent out an e-mail informing others that he had been fired, which eventually made it onto the Facebook page of one of the recipients. This is a portion of that e-mail:

While this comes as a shock to both Robin and myself, it is part of today's global picture of intercollegiate athletics across the country. I realized that when I took the job.’

The university is expected to release a statement on these moves on Thursday afternoon. This has been a shocking development that will require a thorough explanation.
