Announcement on more cuts coming soon

Expect an announcement later this afternoon on more cuts in the UW athletic department including, apparently, some layoffs.
When the Huskies cut the swimming program 12 days ago the school said that was $1.2 million of a total of $2.8-$3 million it needed to cut out of its athletic department budget for the 2009-10 fiscal year. Sounds as if the other shoe has dropped today, though I wouldn’t expect this would directly impact the major revenue-generating sports of football or men’s basketball. But we’ll see.
