Interim Athletics Director selected

March 26th, 2010

Today, I am announcing that I've appointed Lorraine Davis to be the interim Athletics Director. She will begin April 20 and serve on a month-by-month basis until a permanent Athletics Director is selected in a national search.

Lorraine has a long, distinguished history with the university. She started on the faculty in 1972 and retired in 2006 as the vice president for academic affairs. She is an excellent administrator who already works closely with the athletics department team in her current role overseeing the academic support services for student-athletes.

She also chairs the vice provost for enrollment management search, which is expected to be completed soon, and is deputy administrator of the E.C. Brown Foundation and Trust, a philanthropic health education organization. I am confident that she'll be a strong leader at this important time for the Athletics Department.
