It's official: Yow is leaving

It's official: Debbie Yow is leaving the University of Maryland to be N.C. State's new athletic director.

Now we can turn attention to her legacy and who may replace her.

Maryland may need to hire an interim athletic director, according to officials connected with the state university system. That's because the university president, C.D. "Dan" Mote Jr., is leaving at the end of August.

Any solid athletic director candidate would want to to have the blessing of the new university president. But since the new president has not yet been picked, the university may find itself in a transition phase for quiite awhile.
