Yow's replacement as Maryland AD dependent on how quickly a new school president can be named
Maryland officials confirmed Friday that Debbie Yow has left to become the athletic director at North Carolina State. Yow will be introduced in Raleigh, N.C., at 2 p.m., and she will speak with reporters from the Washington-Baltimore region in a teleconference at 4 p.m.
Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation said Friday morning that University of Maryland President C.D. Mote will announce an interim replacement for Yow sometime early next week. As for when a permanent replacement for Yow will be named, that decision likely won't come for at least another couple months.
Mote will retire Aug. 31 and a permanent replacement for him has not yet been named. Multiple sources with knowledge of the presidential search process said Friday that a decision on Mote's replacement likely will be made sometime between the middle of August and the end of September.
The search committee charged with vetting potential replacements for Mote currently is in the process of narrowing its list down to 16 candidates, sources said. From July 13-15, committee members will meet with those 16 candidates at either Baltimore-Washington International airport or Dulles International airport to conduct interviews that will last roughly two hours each, according to sources.
Once those interviews are completed, the committee will trim the list down to three to five finalists and present those finalists to the Board of Regents and Chancellor William E. Kirwan. One source with knowledge of the process said it is unlikely Maryland's athletic director vacancy will expedite the presidential search process.
Sources said the new school president likely would be the one to hire the new athletic director, which means the process to determine Yow's replacement won't gather serious momentum for a least a few months.
