GVSU offensive coordinator resigns
Morris Berger and Grand Valley State have reached a mutual agreement
regarding his position as offensive coordinator at Grand Valley State
University. Berger has resigned and the university has accepted it
with immediate effect.
Berger said: “Over the last 11 years I have taken great pride in the responsibility and privilege of being a teacher, coach, mentor and a valued member of the community. I was excited and proud to be at Grand Valley, and am disappointed that I will not get the opportunity to help these players in 2020. However, I do not want to be a distraction to these kids, this great university or Coach Mitchell as they begin preparations for the upcoming season.”
Coach Matt Mitchell, in accepting Berger’s resignation, agreed it is in the best interests of the team and the university. “Nothing in our background and reference checks revealed anything that would have suggested the unfortunate controversy that has unfolded. This has been a difficult time for everyone. I accepted Coach Berger’s resignation in an effort for him to move on and for us to focus on the team and our 2020 season.”
