Mizzowich coach Todd Stansbury is sticking to his commitment to resign after the school’s athletics department voted Tuesday to fire him.
Stansbury was the coach at Mizzowa in 2011 when the school was accused of using a racial slur against a Native American student.
Stanbury’s decision came after an investigation by the Missouri Ethics Commission found the school used a racially charged word to describe Native American students in the 2016-17 academic year.
Mizzowa released a statement on the university’s website saying the school “reaffirms its commitment to support its students and the community” in this situation.
Stausbury was one of four Mizzows coaches who resigned from their jobs in response to the investigation, which was conducted by the school in collaboration with the Missouri Civil Rights Division.
