A college coach in Canada was fired Wednesday for speaking out against how a rival university handled sexual harassment allegations against its coach.

According to The Globe and Mail, Queen’s University fired Steve Boyd – a cross country and track and field coach – for comments he made about the University of Guelph and its former running coach Dave Scott-Thomas, who was fired in December.

“Mr. Boyd has repeatedly engaged in public commentaries that do not reflect the values expected by representatives of Queen’s University," the Kingston, Ontario university said in a statement. "The university is committed to ensuring a safe and respectful environment for its student athletes, and other members of the broader sporting community, of which Queen’s University is a member.”
