WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller plans to announce tomorrow his decision about whether to cut sports programs from the school’s athletic department.

Miller will hold a news conference at 8 a.m. to announce his decision about the report that recommended eliminating five programs, according to a university spokeswoman. A committee Miller commissioned earlier this year to examine the athletic department recommended the school cut men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s cross country, men’s indoor track and softball

Miller’s announcement will come just before the UNCW Board of Trustees is scheduled to meet for a special meeting at 9 a.m. in the Warwick Center Ballroom on campus. The Board of Trustees is scheduled to discuss the committee’s report among other issue.

WWAY has also learned Miller has reportedly been meeting this week with student-athletes for their feedback on the recommendations.
