UNC Wilmington Athletic Director Fired

Peggy Bradley-Doppes is no longer the Athletic Director for UNC Wilmington.

Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo has reassigned Bradley-Doppes to work in the Division of Public Service and Continuing Studies.

Bradley-Doppes took over the athletic department in August of 1999.

In a written statement Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo says, "I believe the University will be better served with this change in Athletic Department leadership.  This decision was reached after Peg and I continued to have philosophical differences in communication and leadership styles."

An announcement regarding an interim replacement is expected later Tuesday afternoon.
