NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard Academy has demoted the head of its business school following an investigation that found that he had bullied a subordinate.
An academy spokesman tells The Day that Capt. Kevin Lopes was removed as head of the Management Department in April “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to effectively lead the department.”
The spokesman said the removal was “the product of no single incident.”
Lopes remains a member of the faculty at the New London school.
Lopes did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment on Thursday.
