Reports: U. Md. athletic director on his way out

WASHINGTON — Kevin Anderson is reportedly on his way out as Maryland Athletic Director.

According to multiple reports, Anderson was put on administrative leave earlier this month after an apparent falling out with school President Wallace Loh.

However, on the Twitter site “UMD Right Now,” which is unverified but claims to be the “home for everything happening right now at the University of Maryland,” issued a statement denying that Anderson has been fired and reiterated his status as the Athletic Director.

The statement did not address whether or not he has been placed on administrative leave.

Anderson’s future was highly in doubt after several reports of his interest in other positions, mainly involving schools on the West Coast.

Anderson is originally from California’s Bay Area, graduating from San Francisco State University in 1979 and has deep ties to the West Coast.

On Aug. 15, Mike Williams announced he would step down as athletic director at California when his current contract expired in May, prompting a lot of speculation that Cal could be a landing spot for Anderson.

This is a developing story.
