Navy athletic director addresses events surrounding firing, rehiring of football assistant Ivin Jasper

On Thursday, athletic director Chet Gladchuk gave a frank assessment of the events that have dominated the conversation surrounding the Navy football program this week.

Gladchuk talked honestly about what happened following Saturday’s 23-3 loss to Air Force when he fired offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper in the locker room.

During an interview with the Sing Second Sports podcast, Gladchuk spoke about his actions in the wake of watching an offensive performance that saw Navy amass only 68 total yards and six first downs. The Midshipmen managed just 36 rushing yards and went three-and-out on eight of 12 possessions.
