Iowa athletics official Fred Mims reassigned in wake of Peter Gray sexual harassment case | TheGazette
Coralville Courier Editor's Note: Another case involving sex - a vice. Have you noticed how many sexually related incidents are in the news? Not just for the U of I either, it's everywhere. The news of *prominence* seems to be all about vices.
IOWA CITY — The reassignment of a senior official in the University of Iowa Athletics Department and the reorganization of two athletic units was partly under discussion for several months, but the timing of the changes also reflects the recent investigation of sexual harassment allegations by a former staffer, Athletic Director Gary Barta said.
Longtime department official Fred Mims has been reassigned, Barta announced Friday, and the department’s compliance and student services units will become separate units under the leadership of two interim directors, effective immediately.
