Tiger Academic Guidance Group will be dissolved, the group said on Thursday.
The group’s executive director, Jennifer Gentry, said in a statement that she is stepping down from her position.
“The Tiger Academic Group will no longer be a part of Tiger,” Gentry said in the statement.
“However, I am not leaving the organization, nor am I stepping down. “
I remain a proud Tiger alumna and proud Tiger student, as well as a proud alumna of the Tiger Athletic Club.” “

Gentry also thanked all of the members of the group and their families, who she said have supported her throughout this difficult time.
“It is my hope that as Tiger evolves in the future, that our students and the members will remain united and that we will all continue to be a model of excellence and success,” Gentson said.
“To my family and friends, I wish you and your family a happy and safe future.”
The announcement came on the heels of the resignation of Tiger Athletic Vice President, Jeff Prentice.
Prentice announced his departure in a letter to the student body, saying he “could not stand” the group’s practices and values.
“Over the past two years, I found that the Tiger Group, the Tiger Club, the Academic Advisory Board and other staff members have made me feel unwelcome and disrespected by many members,” Prentice wrote.
“Despite their efforts to make me feel welcome and respected, I had to leave the group.
I have not only left the Tiger Association, but also the Tiger Clubs and other Tiger organizations to take a job at the University of Oklahoma.”
Prentice said he had not received a response from the University regarding his departure.
Gentry will remain the executive director of the organization and its board of directors.
She said the organization will no long have the support of alumni.
“For many years, our community of Tiger students, alumni, coaches, and staff has been united and proud of the work we have done,” Gentons statement said.
She also said she is not leaving Tiger Athletics because of her “difficult decisions.”
