Fired UM Coach, Athletic Director Hire Attorneys

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Fired University of Montana football coach Robin Pflugrad and athletic director Jim O’Day have met with attorneys in the wake of their sudden dismissals.

The Missoulian reports in a story published Sunday that Pflugrad has met with Milt Datsopoulos of Datsopoulos, MacDonald and Lind, a firm that has represented UM football players with legal problems in recent years.

O’Day has hired the Billings law firm of Edwards, Frickle and Culver.

University President Royce Engstrom told Pflugrad and O’Day on Thursday that he would not be renewing O’Day and Pflugrad’s contracts, but did not give a reason, nor did he go into specifics when he broke the news to the coach and athletic director.

Datsopoulos says the way Pflugrad and O’Day were dismissed created ambiguity and rumors.
