EMU extends AD search

YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University announced today that it will reopen the search for the director of intercollegiate athletics.

“The decision to reopen the search was made after the leading candidate, Lee Reed, athletic director at Cleveland State University, withdrew his name from consideration prior to an offer being made,” said Courtney McAnuff, vice president for enrollment services and chair of the search committee.

“Based on feedback we received following interviews with the other candidates, Frank Pergolizzi, athletic director at Southeastern Louisiana, and Christopher May, associate athletic director for sports programs and revenue at the University of Colorado, we felt that neither candidate was the right fit for EMU.”

McAnuff said he would meet with John Fallon, president of Eastern Michigan University, when the University reopens in January to discuss the search and what the next steps will be. Bob England, interim director of athletics, will remain in that position until a permanent athletic director is named, McAnuff said.
