Pelowski removed as field hockey head coach

 Molly Pelowski has been removed as Central Michigan field hockey head coach.

The decision was announced Oct. 26 by Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics Michael Alford. Pelowski continues to be employed by CMU. Alford met with the team Thursday to discuss the future of the program. 

A search for Pelwoski's replacement will begin immediately. 

“Molly is a loyal Chippewa and has been one of the most warm and welcoming people on the staff,” Alford said the release. “We have a team of outstanding students who achieve at the highest levels in the classroom. A change is needed so we can put our student-athletes in a position to win Mid-American Conference titles.”

Pelowski went 3-49 as head coach after being hired in February 2015, with a 2-15 in the MAC and a 1-22 record at home. 

The team currently sits at 0-17 on the season, dropping 31-consecutive games and held without a goal in its last 12 contests.

An interim coach for Friday's season finale at Ball State has yet to be named. 

The Chippewas received the National Academic Team Award from the National Field Hockey Coaches Association in her first two seasons. The team has also produced 30 players who made the NFHCA National Academic Team, as well as six players named Scholar of Distinction.
