NEW MAN IN NOLA: In New Orleans, Lyons Yellin notes the Univ. of New Orleans hired DEREK MOREL as its new AD. Morel, a New Orleans native, was previously IMG Sports Marketing VP & GM for its Wake Forest Univ. properties. He is the school’s “fifth athletic director in three years, and replaces AMY CHAMPION.” UNO President PETER FOS said that the school “considered more than 75 applicants before selecting Morel, citing his fundraising experience as a key factor.” Yellin notes Fos "singled out Morel’s tenure" as St. Bonaventure Univ. AssociateAD/External Relations. While at St. Bonaventure, Morel “delivered a 150 percent increase in sponsorship revenue” between ‘97 and ‘04. Morel is “not contractually obligated to begin at UNO until July 1” (New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 5/16).
