The following statement is from Air Force Academy Director of Athletics Dr. Hans Mueh in response to head football coach Troy Calhoun's weekly teleconference.
"We have no intent of interest in leaving the Mountain West Conference. It's been a great association for us and given us opportunities we would never had had without being a member. The benefits from being in the conference go beyond just athletics."
"I think coach Troy Calhoun's comments today come out of concern for his team being bowl-eligible and the possibility of not having an opportunity to participate in a post-season bowl game. He is so passionate about this program and its players that he wants what is best for them. It's that passion and commitment that attracted us to him."
