The 2019 Earlham College football season has been canceled. And the future for the Division III program is in question. Interim president Avis Stewart, a 1974 graduate of the college, announced in a statement Tuesday that next year’s season would be suspended after consultation with the College Cabinet, the Senior Director of Athletics, Faculty Athletics Representatives, and the Earlham Board of Trustees and “authorizing a review to examine the factors that are necessary to build and sustain a viable and competitive football program that would potentially attract significant numbers of student-athletes to enroll in our College.” Last Thursday, Director of Athletics Julie Kline announced that head coach Nick Johnson would leave the program and undertake a new role at Earlham, assisting with student-athlete development for the Department of Athletics. With a 70-6 loss to Rose-Hulman on Saturday, Earlham completed a fifth consecutive winless season, and extended the NCAA Division III national record with its 53rd straight loss. The Quakers last won on Oct. 26, 2013, when they defeated Anderson 21-20. – Jesús Jiménez, pal-item –  Real More
