Subject: New Duquesne AD to report directly to the President

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]
Date Posted: 10:20:23 05/14/05 Sat

Duquesne got a head start on Fordham yesterday by announcing that their new AD will report directly to the President. Former AD Brian Colleary had reported to the VP of Student Services, as is the current reporting structure at Fordham. Is there a major Div. 1 university remaining in the country that still has the AD reporting to a VP? We need to get going here.

Here is the Duquesne announcement:

Duquesne Athletics
Hightower named interim Director of Athletics
Search to fill vacant AD position to begin immediately

May 13, 2005

University President Dr. Charles J. Dougherty announced Friday that he has accepted the resignation of Director of Athletics Brian Colleary.

"The University thanks Brian for his service and wishes him well in future endeavors," said Dr. Dougherty, adding that the new athletic director, who will report directly to the president, will be asked to comprehensively examine Duquesne's athletics programs to ensure Duquesne sports programs rise to the next level.

The search for a new athletic director will begin immediately. Current Assistant Athletic Director for Business, Paul Hightower, will serve as interim Director of Athletics until a permanent replacement is named.

I wonder who our softball coach and basketball coach will be reporting to in the next year or two if our glorious athletic hierarchy doesn't get off their butts and doing something about contracts. C'mon, Fr. McShane, if we're going to make Fordham the "pre-eminent" Catholic university in the area, then we have to establish preeminence in some sports, at least. (NT)John14:00:44 05/14/05 Sat

I find it interesting that the MAC is delighted to have a presence in Phila. Attendance at TU home games is weak vs Big East Schools. It will likely worsen against the "directionals". (NT)Jimbo6513:21:02 05/16/05 Mon
