Lynn Dorn is one of the most well-known sports personalities in this town. Tonight she's dealing with attention of the wrong kind. She's been suspended from her duties as NDSU women's athletic director for two weeks after what the school calls significant inappropriate behavior. I asked Bison A.D. Gene Taylor once the suspension ends, will she come back.
Gene Taylor – NDSU Athletic Director: “She's been here a long time, been a great employee. She's shown no pattern, so, yes, she'd be welcome back.”
Dorn has been at NDSU since 1968, and under tenure the Bison women's programs have seen remarkable success from division 2 national championships to breakthroughs in the division 1 landscape with volleyball and softball. The question now is how will these teams move forward when Dorn returns?
Gene Taylor: “I don't have an answer to that right now. It’s something that I’ll certainly visit with Lynn about when she gets back. I think a lot of people on this staff respect her enough to get by this at some point in time. It may take awhile.”
Taylor told me he has assumed Dorn's responsibilities. She's been told not to contact any of her coaches and cannot attend this weekend's softball games...
