University of Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst quits after 18 months; going to Nebraska

University of Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst quits after 18 months; going to Nebraska | Sports Ethics: Silva, A. | Scoop.it

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Shawn Eichorst has resigned as Miami’s athletic director, the latest blow to a department bracing to be hit by NCAA sanctions, said a person with knowledge of the situation.

 

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Thursday because the university — which was scrambling to decide how to fill Eichorst’s role on a short-term basis — had not publicly announced Eichorst’s decision. Various reports in Nebraska have identified Eichorst this week as a candidate to replace the retiring Tom Osborne as the Cornhuskers’ athletic director.

 

Eichorst, who has not spoken with reporters in months, did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment. His resignation comes two days before Miami plays Notre Dame, the first regular-season meeting between the storied football programs since 1990.

 

The person who spoke to AP said the school was holding off on making formal comment until Nebraska was set to announce its AD choice. One possible replacement for Eichorst on an interim basis would be senior associate athletic director for development Blake James, who returned to the Hurricanes in 2010 after spending five years as Maine’s athletic director.

 

Eichorst’s tenure at Miami lasted less than 18 months. He was hired by the Hurricanes after serving as Wisconsin’s Chief Operating Officer for athletics, overseeing a $90 million budget and being closely involved with a $100 million construction project for ice hockey, swimming and football. Eichorst was highly recommended for the Miami job by his one-time boss at Wisconsin, athletic director Barry Alvarez — a close friend of Miami President Donna Shalala...
