Cornell University officials fired its head men’s lacrosse coach Ben DeLuca on Thursday, nearly two months after the team was temporarily suspended following a “keg race” hazing incident involving “coerced alcohol consumption by underaged freshmen.” The team is currently ranked third nationally, but is not playing in fall competitions due to the suspension. Cornell President David J. Skorton has taken a tough stance on hazing, saying in 2011 that the Greek system would ban pledging to help curb the practice.
