In an open letter from the athletic department, the University of Minnesota announced that it would be cutting four men’s sports after the completion of their 2020-21 season.
The announcement stated the following:
"As a result, we have determined that Athletics is no longer able to financially or equitably sustain 25 varsity programs, and pending approval of the Board of Regents, we will discontinue men's indoor track and field, men's outdoor track and field, men's gymnastics and men's tennis at the completion of their 2020-21 competition season. Should health and safety precautions allow, these teams will have the opportunity to compete during the 2020-21 season."
