UMd. AD Taking 6-Month Sabbatical

University of Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson announced Monday he is taking a six-month sabbatical for professional development, according to the university.

"The University of Maryland has granted me the opportunity to remain in my position of athletic director while I take a six-month professional development sabbatical to engage in various projects focusing on leadership development, including work with a broad coalition of groups focused on issues of equity, student athlete activism and inclusion in college athletics and working with the NACDA/John McLendon Minority Scholarship Foundation," Anderson announced.

Executive Director, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Athletics Damon Evans will assume athletic director duties.

Over the weekend, sources told News4's Carol Maloney Anderson was on paid administrative leave, but the university said in a statement Anderson was still the athletic director.
