As an alumnus and head football coach of Kalamazoo College, I am writing to express my deep apologies regarding recruiting practices of the football program presented in a recent Index article.
I understand now that the tour guide portion of our Saturday recruiting visitations was an exclusive practice and offended numerous colleagues, alumnae/alumni, friends of the college and many students on campus and for that I am deeply sorry.
Immediately following the Saturday, January 10th visitation, we changed the tour portion of our program and are using college-trained tour guides for all tours moving forward. My intention has and always will be to represent the college with class, dignity and the highest integrity.
This event has allowed me and the entire football staff to look at all practices of our program through different lenses and we will continue to educate ourselves and our entire team to ensure that a mistake like this is never made again.
