Grambling reassigns head coaches
Washington, Rogers relieved of duties but remain with school
GRAMBLING, La. -- A Grambling State athletics spokeswoman says men's basketball coach Bobby Washington and women's coach Donnita Rogers have been "reassigned" within the university and relieved of their coaching duties.
La'Monica Scott says a formal announcement has yet to be made and she could not immediately provide further details on Grambling's decision.
The men's team went 4-24 this season, playing under a postseason ban and with a reduction in scholarships because of poor scores on the NCAA's annual Academic Progress Rates report. Teams have low APR scores when their players have low grades or leave school early in poor academic standing.
The women's team was 15-15, including a 10-8 record in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Washington and Rogers did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.
