will discontinue its men's and women's rodeo programs at the end of the current
season, Athletic Director John Hartwell announced Wednesday afternoon.
"After an extensive evaluation
of our rodeo programs, part of which included revenue, expenses, number of
participants and risk management, the determination was made to discontinue the
men's and women's rodeo programs at the end of the current academic year,"
Troy currently competes in the
Ozark Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. There are a
total of 19 student-athletes participating between the two programs, nine of
which receive scholarship funds. Troy will honors all of its scholarship
commitments to the current members of the rodeo teams.
"We certainly understand the
situation our student-athletes on the rodeo teams are in with this decision,"
Hartwell said. "We will make every effort to accommodate them whether they
chose to remain at Troy and finish their degrees or transfer to another school
to finish their rodeo careers."
Former head coach Josh Simmons
resigned in December and has been replaced on an interim basis by Will Bradley,
who will coach the teams for the remainder of the season.
