Randy Eaton to be candidate for permanent Maryland athletic director position
Randy Eaton, Maryland's chief financial officer and interim athletic director, said in a telephone interview Friday night that he will be considered as a candidate for the school's permanent A.D. position.
Eaton was informed Monday by Linda Clement, the chair of the search committee charged with seeking out candidates for the post, that he had been nominated for the full-time gig by multiple people, and Eaton said he has decided "to let the nomination process play out."
"I’m not going to say no," said Eaton, who was named Maryland's interim athletic director on June 28. "I don’t even know if I could withdraw a nomination. But if I were to be called, I would go through the process."
Eaton said he did not know who nominated him, nor did he know what the next step in the process will be. When he asked Clement on Monday whether he needed to submit a formal application at this time if he were interested in the job, Clement said no.
Maryland formed a 17-member search committee June 29 to begin the process of finding Debbie Yow's successor. Yow, who served as Maryland's athletic director for 16 years, left the school June 25 to take the same position at N.C. State. The committee held its first meeting Thursday.
"I don’t know how this is playing out," Eaton said. "I don’t know what the process is for the search committee. I think I’ve stated before, I’m not involved at all [in the search committee], and at this point I shouldn’t be since I’ve been nominated."
