From a statement released by Terrapins Athletic Director Kevin Anderson via the school’s website (Anderson had previously been linked to the job-even reported to be interviewing for the job by the Dallas Morning News)…
I write this post as reports have surfaced in the media recently speculating my connection to the athletic director opening at the University of Texas. I must confess I am humbled to be mentioned in connection with such a position, but more importantly, I feel it speaks volumes to the outstanding progress we have made at the University of Maryland and to the new heights our athletic department is destined for in the future.
Let me be clear, I am not pursuing any other professional opportunities at other institutions. I am steadfast in my commitment to the University of Maryland.
We open up the men’s basketball season on Friday, November 8 against No. 18 Connecticut at the Barclays Center and then the following afternoon host Syracuse in football with the opportunity to become bowl eligible with a victory. I look forward to seeing you at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium on November 9. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
Here’s to many more exciting years at Maryland!
