DIII DIRT: Leonelli Out at Green Mountain College (VT)

I can confirm that Anthony Leonelli is out as the head coach at DIII Green Mountain College (VT).  He has been replaced by assistant coach Chris Pagentine on an interim basis.  According to a great source, Leonelli was dismissed for “unsatisfactory performance and insubordination.”  At the time of his dismissal, Leonelli’s squad was 10 and 4 – a great start to the season considering the program had won 20 total games in the previous five years combined. My source tells me that the “insubordination” was standing up for his players against the administration. It has been a crazy time up at GMC recently, as the AD was also released a few weeks ago.  I have heard that Green Mountain has also been having compliance issues but Leonelli had previously been cleared in those matters.  More on this when it becomes official.
