Statement from President Main Regarding Release of Mr. Aguero
"Former Track Coach Matt Aguero released a secretly recorded audiotape of one in a series of discussions about his release from the University under the terms of his contract. The content of that discussion and the larger situation have been significantly distorted.
St. Gregory's makes its personnel decisions carefully, and we protect our employees' confidentiality, including Mr. Aguero's and our Athletic Director Dr. Jeff Potter's. However, we can clarify a few key facts.
Even though no classes were held on the day of the Boston Marathon, it was indeed an official work day for staff and that was communicated in the employee handbook and on the University calendar on the campus intranet.
The audiotape Mr. Aguero made public also partially discloses other performance factors that were involved in the decision. Unfortunately, his release of the tape also unethically violates the confidentiality of several of our students and recruits.
St. Gregory's is a caring community of Catholic faith and learning based on Benedictine values. We are proud of our integrity, which includes holding everyone accountable for their actions."
