ESPN is reporting that Mark Meleny, director of Florida State's athletic academic support program, has been told that his contract will not be renewed when it expires this susmmer. This is a move in my opinion that should have happened sooner than now given the academic fraud case that is currently pending.
In a somewhat ambigious statement, FSU president T.K. Wetherell is quoted as saying that "Meleney was not fired."
Previously two of Meleney's employees were dismissed or resigned after it became known that answers were called out to students taking a music history class last spring. Many of those in the class were scholarship athletes who were later suspended for what will be four games in total, one of which was the Music City Bowl.
