Vandy Brings Back AD Role For First Time Since '03; Tanner Becoming South Carolina AD

GOODBYE DUGOUT, HELLO CORNER OFFICE: In Charleston, Gene Sapakoff reports Univ. of South Carolina head baseball coach Ray Tanner "will be introduced as the school's new athletic director" Friday at a 2:00pm ET news conference. The move comes two weeks after former South Carolina AD Eric Hyman "bolted for Texas A&M." Tanner "emerged as the people's choice for AD after Hyman resigned." But Hyman "declined to officially support Tanner's candidacy" during an interview Thursday with Columbia's WLTX-CBS. Hyman also "repeated that athletic director decisions are not as simple as the 'black and white' world of coaching moves" (Charleston POST & COURIER, 7/13).
