NC A&T AD fired, Track Coach retires following students death

Wheeler Brown, the athletic director at North Carolina A&T University has been fired, today, following the death of a student during an unsanctioned track tryout.

Brown, an A&T graduate and former football player, first came to the campus in 2002 as the department’s associate athletics director for internal affairs and compliance. He served as interim AD from November, 2007 until being named permanent AD in August, 2008.

Track coach Roy Thompson — a 26-year A&T employee — has since announced his retirement effective December 1.

An autopsy released Thursday showed that 20-year-old Jospin Milandu died as a result of complications from sickle-cell disease. Milandu was one of 29 students at a A&T track tryout who had not been given a physical, an NCAA violation. A newly designed mandatory screening test which all Division I college athletes began undergoing this fall would likely have revealed the sickle-cell trait, which can lead to sudden death during strenuous exercise.

An athletic trainer was absent during the, Aug. 19 tryouts, which is against school policy. It was 82 degrees and cloudy, on the day the tryout were held the autopsy said.

Deborah Calloway, will take over Brown's duties until another athletic director is named.
