ULM names interim athletic administrator

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Today, ULM will formally name it's Men's Basketball Coach Keith Richard as interim senior athletic administrator until a new athletic director is appointed. Current Athletic Director Bobby Staub, who resigned April 16, will maintain his position until July 1. Staub will utilize some leave time until that date.

Coach Richard, a ULM graduate, spoke with other coaches before accepting the new endeavor. Richard, who became the men's basketball coach in 2010, was the logical choice, as his schedule permits more time during the upcoming search process, Bruno said.

Richard will: act in the absence of the athletic director; serve until a new athletic director is hired; assume primary responsibility of marketing and public advocacy of ULM's athletic program; lead athletic fundraising; coordinate daily operations; serve as interim director of the athletic foundation; and report to the university president. 

A timeline for the search will be developed and communicated to the public as soon as possible.
