The silver lining here is Simmons will land at a much better college in which to coach, be it NAIA, D3, D2, or D-I. He has a good resume, might as well use it to get to a real college.
The good thing for the athletes is they can transfer to a school that actually has some money for not just athletics, but science labs, better instructors, student organizations, and quality residence halls.
Who wants to attend a university that is on its last legs? And who wants to be associated with an athletic department that the administration isn't supporting?
I'd never heard of VI until I read about their distance program. It's sad for the athletes, coaches, and the student body.
In the long run, each student, athlete, coach, and some faculty will upgrade by attending or working at a better university.
I'd jump off that ship fast.
