West Point administration and the rugby team are keeping very quiet, but former Head Coach Mike Mahan has been working on making sure the program returns, albeit likely with a very young roster.

The returning players who were caught up in the offensive email scandal that put the program on hold are working toward being allowed to play, and according to sources are on track.

Reports are that the inevitable will finally be acknowledged soon in official circles, that Director of Rugby Rich Pohlidal will not return. During the investigation into the email scandal, Pohlidal's coaching and leadership of the program came under scrutiny, and that didn't turn out too well for him.

Pohlidal will be taking a job away from West Point. No official word on who will replace him, but it is likely Mahan will remain involved at least for the short-term.
