SVSU Fires Head Coach For Alleged Misconduct 4-01-2011

Saginaw Valley State University has fired its softball coach for alleged financial misconduct.
The university released a statement Friday that, effective immediately, Everett Roper, 43, is no longer heading the program.
In the statement, Matthew Woodbury, the SVSU director of athletic media relations, said the school was “disappointed” by Roper’s conduct. “We are deeply disappointed by incidents of unacceptable financial misconduct by Mr. Roper,” said Woodbury.
No other information regarding the misconduct was disclosed.
The school said assistant coach Tim Rousse will assume the duties of head softball coach on an interim basis.
In January 2010, Roper was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and possessing marijuana. The Saginaw News reported the coach was suspended for 30 days by the school after a plea deal was worked out regarding the charges.
SVSU hired Roper as coach in 2007.
