BREAKING: Lon Morris athletic department shut down

Posted: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE (KYTX) - Breaking news tonight regarding Lon Morris College and their athletic department, it has been shut down.

We spoke with Dale Dotson, the school's long time athletic director and head basketball coach, just before our 10 o'clock news and he confirmed the Lon Morris athletic department has been closed.

Lon Morris has had financial problems for months.

Many employees were not paid, and last month the school was shut down for the summer and many staff members were placed on furlough.

Dotson says the closure of the athletic department will affect about 300 students, and they are in the process of contacting them tonight.

The NJCAA has also been contacted about the closure.
