As Maryland's search for new athletic director begins, a list of potential candidates emerges

Athletic directors, like attorneys and accountants, often talk shop when they meet at national conventions and regional conferences. Over the past few months, the talk has often turned to what was going on at Maryland.

It came up at the NCAA National Convention in January in Indianapolis, where many of Kevin Anderson’s colleagues tried to get information on what was called his “professional development sabbatical.”

That talk is still going on this week at a conference in Santa Monica, Calif., where a group of athletic directors are meeting. Some of them are trying to learn more about Anderson’s resignation Friday and the search process for his successor.
