Brookdale Fires Its Athletics Director

Leaders at Monmouth County’s Brookdale Community College have fired the school’s athletic director, claiming he violated its code of ethics.

Brookdale’s trustees made the decision to fire Frank Lawrence during a special meeting Friday.

School officials accused Lawrence of improperly handling cash and deposits; paying himself money he shouldn’t have received and creating discrepancies in documentation and payments for students who worked at a scholastic tournament.

Lawrence didn’t deny paying himself $200 in cash out of the tournament’s proceeds.

 

 

But he claimed he followed procedures that had been in place for several decades, and said other Brookdale officials knew of the practice but never ordered it halted.

Michael Barrett, Lawrence’s attorney, told the Asbury Park Press his client may appeal the decision to state Superior Court.
