FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The man who has led the University of Alaska Nordic ski teams for more than a decade has been placed on leave.

Coach Scott Jerome confirmed to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://is.gd/9rtNwI) that he is no longer coaching but remains a university employee.

Beyond saying Scott’s contract won’t be renewed when it runs out June 30, UAF athletic director Gary Gray wouldn’t elaborate because it’s a personnel matter.

The 44-year-old Jerome has coached the Nanooks for the last 10.5 years.

Gray says Christine Turman, the assistant ski coach, will be the interim coach and will lead the Nanooks at the U.S. Cross Country Ski championships, which end Saturday in Houghton, Michigan.
