SoCon Commissioner Imarino on Elon’s departure
Southern Conference Commissioner John Imarino released a statement regarding Elon, the school recently announced it would be the next school to leave the conference. The departure will be the fifth the conference has seen lately with Georgia Southern, Appalachian State, College of Charleston, and Davidson all heading elsewhere.
“In recent years, it became increasingly evident that Elon’s negative view of the diversity in the Southern Conference was not shared by the majority of the membership. Our core group remains firmly committed to each other and to the academic and athletic success of the Southern Conference. We are preparing specific initiatives to achieve that success.”
