Central Michigan University field hockey coach Molly Pelowski was relieved of her duties today by Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics Michael Alford.
Pelowski will not be re-appointed, Alford said, and a search for the next head coach will begin immediately.
Alford met with the field hockey team today to discuss the future of the program.
“Molly is a loyal Chippewa and has been one of the most warm and welcoming people on the staff,” Alford said. “We have a team of outstanding students who achieve at the highest levels in the classroom. A change is needed so we can put our student-athletes in position to win Mid-American Conference titles.”
In each of Pelowski’s first two years as head coach, the Chippewas received the National Academic Team Award from the National Field Hockey Coaches Association. In addition, 30 Chippewas over that two-season span have made the NFHCA National Academic Squad, and six have been named as a Scholar of Distinction.
Pelowski was named CMU’s fifth field hockey coach in February 2015. She leaves with a record of 3-49. Pelowski worked as a graduate assistant at CMU from 2006-08.
