CRR Jim Fischer, who effectively lost his job when the University of Delaware dumped its DI men’s running program two years ago, has been hired to head up the men’s and women’s cross-country programs at Delaware Technical Community College’s Stanton campus.

See story in News Journal.

Fischer became the University of Delaware’s coach for men’s cross-country, indoor track, and outdoor track in 1982. He coached the UD women’s cross-country team and its track team’s distance runners from 2008-11. Delaware eliminated the men’s indoor program after the 2008-09 season, then axed men’s cross-country and outdoor track after the 2010-11 season, citing Title IX concerns and economics.
