I just got off the phone with athletics director Mack Rhoades.

He expects the search for Kelly Kennedy's replacement to conclude by the end of this week or the start of next.

Although he declined to say who the possibilities were, Rhoades said he has spoken with about 10 of them.


The athletics department has not yet announced a replacement for Mike Waddell, the senior associate athletics director of external relations.

A report on says Hunter Yurachek has been hired. Yurachek graduated from Guilford College, which is the same school as Waddell. Most recently, Yurachek was associate athletics director for marketing and promotions at Virginia, the same school as where former AD Mike Thomas came from.

I asked Rhoades about it. He said the university will make an announcement in the next couple days on who will fill the position.
