Concordia (Minn.) has fired women’s coach Corey “Ace” Gregg after he was dismissed from a select camp.
Gregg was working at a camp for 15-year-old girls when he was released for “inappropriate behavior,” Barry Ford, the president of hockey operations for Minnesota Hockey, told the Fargo (N.D.) Forum.
Ford told the newspaper that an incident took place between Gregg and an adult female counselor at the camp on June 15. None of the campers was involved, Ford said.
Concordia fired Gregg six days later.
“We all make mistakes and we all suffer consequences from poor choices, but you never like to see it happen among people that you’ve gotten to know and become close with, but we’ve got an obligation to look out for the best interest of our student-athletes and the reputation of our program,” Concordia athletic director Larry Papenfuss told the Forum. “It was on those grounds that the decision was made.”
Assistant coach Joe Vannett has taken over on an interim basis.
