The University of Guelph has terminated its relationship with Dave Scott-Thomas, the head coach of its track and field program.

Recently, the University received information from former and current track and field athletes regarding their experiences on the team. During the course of reviewing this information and in the last 24 hours, the University became privy to new information regarding past unprofessional conduct.

The well-being of our student-athletes is a priority; the University does not tolerate conduct from its coaches that is inconsistent with the core values and beliefs of the University of Guelph and our University’s Coaches Code of Conduct.

The University would like to remind students, staff and faculty of its available support services and initiatives, including:

  • Employee assistance program for faculty and staff, 1-800-265-8310
  • Multi-Faith Resource Team, Ext.  58909
  • Student Counselling Services, Ext. 53244
  • Crisis Text Line, text “UofG” to 686868
