NEW LONDON, Conn. — 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.

The spokesman says the academy received a report on Jan. 30 of bullying involving Lopes and initiated an investigation. The investigation, which began Feb. 27 and was concluded by March 26, found Lopes guilty of bullying.
