Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson is leaving the university, the Terrapins announced Friday.
Anderson, who had been on a lengthy sabbatical, began his tenure with Maryland in 2010 and oversaw the school’s transition from the ACC to the Big Ten.
“I’m grateful for all that Kevin has done to support our student-athletes to be successful in the classroom, on the field or court, and in life,” Maryland president Wallace Loh said in a statement. “I wish him every success in his future endeavors. I know he’ll inspire many more student-athletes for years to come.”
Anderson was placed on sabbatical six months ago after the school denied rumors that it fired its athletic director. Executive AD Damon Evans has served as Maryland’s interim athletic director during Anderson’s sabbatical, and the school announced he will remain in that role as a national search for Anderson’s replacement takes place.
Anderson, 62, also served as the athletic director at Army from 2004-10.
