University of Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson is on paid administrative leave, sources told News4’s Carol Maloney.
Sources told Maloney Anderson's contract would possibly expire as early as next year.
The university said in a statement Anderson was still the athletic director.
Bobby Blanco, with MASNSports.com, said sources told him university president Wallace Loh removed Anderson on Oct. 1. Blanco said Loh was upset that Anderson sought the University of California athletic director position.
Blanco reported Anderson will be on administrative leave until August 2018. He said there has been no official announcement, but boosters are campaigning for former head basketball coach Gary Williams to take over the position.
