The Univ. of Alabama today announced that AD Mal Moore
is “stepping down … to serve as special assistant to President Judy Bonner
.” Moore cited health reasons as “influencing his decision for stepping down, saying he was no longer able to run the department in a ‘championship’ manner the position requires.” Moore was hospitalized last week in Birmingham and was later “transferred to Duke University.” He had been the AD at UA since ‘99 (ALABAMAS13.com, 3/20
). Moore is a finalist for AD of the Year in this year’s SBJ/SBD Sports Business Awards.
