The Citadel remembers longtime athletics department staffer, coach

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Family, friends and The Citadel community honored the life of a longtime athletics department member.

Mike Groshon, a 1976 Citadel graduate, died last week of leukemia.

The James Island native worked for the military college for the last 35 years.

Groshon served the athletics department in a number of ways, including facility and field maintenance, equipment manager and tennis coach.

Groshon also started The Citadel's annual most beautiful bulldog contest.
