Northeastern drops its football program. The Boston Globe reports. From the story:
The 87 players and 10 coaches learned their fate last night at a meeting on campus with (athletic director Peter) Roby, a day after the Football Championship Subdivision team won its final game, 33-27, at the University of Rhode Island to finish 3-8. Officials also planned to quietly notify key alumni and donors before issuing the official announcement in a letter scheduled to be released today at 6 a.m., informing the university that Huskies football would be no more.
Peter Roby, the Northeastern AD, is a former Dartmouth basketball player and someone whose name has been mentioned regarding the permanent Dartmouth athletic director position.
