BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Boise State University has relieved track and field coach J.W. Hardy from his duties a day before the school was to host a nine-team meet.
The school announced Thursday it was not renewing Hardy's 4-year contract, which runs through June.
Assistant coach Jeff Petersmeyer was named interim track coach.
Hardy says he took some time away from the team last week, then met with athletic department officials on Thursday. He declined to say what led him to take time away from the team. The school's statement did not give a reason for not renewing Hardy's contract. He also coached the cross country team.
