UM AD Paul Dee to resign in 2008

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) ? University of Miami athletic director Paul Dee plans to resign June 1, 2008, the school said Wednesday.

Dee became athletic director in 1993. Before that he worked for the school as vice president and general counsel for 12 years.

He oversaw the firing in November of football coach Larry Coker, who went 60-15 with a national title in six seasons with the Hurricanes, and the hiring of new coach Randy Shannon.

During Dee's tenure, the Miami program moved from the Big East Conference to the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Hurricanes added scholarship programs in three women's sports ? soccer, volleyball and rowing ? and have had strong programs in men's and women's tennis and women's track.

Dee's plan to resign was first reported by WQAM-AM.

This had long been rumored he would be resigning (asked to step down) and I think this is the best way. He gives the University a year to do a national search for his successor.

He's been at UM for 27 years now.

Apparently you only follow recruiting for FAU then, seeing as Miami signed a top class this past February after the fall out of Coker being fired.

FIU will get the doors blown off them this year by the start of the second half.

no, i just understand the cyle of emotion and motivation…UM has NOTHING to play for…FIU has EVERYTHING…disagree with that point??

not to mention a former coach who will pour his lifes blood out for the program…and nothing would make him more motivated than to spend countless sleepless nights in preparation with the notion of waxing Miami…

but i agree with you in that there is a definite talent level difference…

I think that this is a bad sign for UM. Shannon will have his work cut out for him --great recruiting class or not. The point is there is a negative image that coaches, staff, and administrators are probably tired of being associated with.
