Curious dismissal

Not sure this is something important but since I have come across two articles about the dismissal of the senior women's administrator in University of Washington's athletic department, I thought I would mention it. Marie Tuite has been with UW for 14 years and several weeks ago UW brought in new AD Scott Woodward. Some say it's a cleaning house move. Getting rid of key players in the old administration.
But given the success female coaches and administrators have had with retaliation cases of late, it's a pretty bold move. Also in Tuite's favor is her 14-year tenure.
Woodward would not give any reasons and it is unknown whether Tuite will be fired or resign.
This article contains more details as well as a comments section where there are some pretty sexist comments about women in sports administration.
