CMU: Cycling coach Rick Crawford terminated

Colorado Mesa University is confirming today that it terminated cycling coach Rick Crawford after learning about another incidence of doping while Crawford was in Durango.

The former cyclist Crawford is accused of doping has remained anonymous, CMU’s cycling director Scott Mercier has said.

Crawford started coaching CMU’s cycling team last February. Earlier this month Crawford came forward to the university citing his involvement providing performance-enhancing drugs to two professional cyclists, Levi Leipheimer and Kirk O’Bee. In light of those allegations, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency required Crawford to complete 500 hours of community service over the next five years providing anti-doping education for the USADA, community organization or any other institution of higher learning.

“It is incredibly disappointing,” CMU President Tim Foster said in a release. “It is just too bad but our commitment remains to support our student-athletes and to giving them the most positive college experience possible.”
