Terps to name their new AD

August 15, 1994

University of Maryland president William E. Kirwan was to introduce the school's new athletic director at College Park today.

Maryland has been looking for a new athletic director since Andy Geiger resigned in May to become the athletic director at Ohio State. It will be Maryland's fourth athletic director in the past eight years.

Sources said last night that acting director William "Bud" Thomas, the vice president for student affairs, will not be named to a permanent position in the athletic department.

All of the candidates recommended to Kirwan by the search committee had announced that they would not pursue the job. None had ever said he or she was anything more than a consultant.

Those reportedly under consideration were Tulane athletic director Kevin White, East Carolina athletic director Dave Hart Jr., Saint Louis athletic director Debbie Yow and Dave Maggard, now with the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games.
