George Bright out at MC?

I understand George is no longer at Moravian. What the heck is going on?

BREAKING: Moravian AD George Bright has suddenly resigned. No word as to why. Had been at Moravian for 18 months. #d3h #d3fb ////

Not a word in The Call that I can find.

Weird.  I hope they hire McKittrick.

The entire athletic department needs a clean slate.

Very weird and not in a good way. Having worked with George I can tell you that he is a nice enough guy, but was in way over his head as the Asst. AD at Lafayette. A guy with relatively no background in college athletics hired into an AD role simply because of the connections to the community caused a lot of strife for the staff at Lafayette. Many coaches felt like he never really did his job and deferred all decisions, so I was skeptical of the Moravian move at best.

While I think Kaity would be a great hire for Moravian, being an alum with great experience, I wouldn't be surprised if they couldn't afford her after her new promotion with the Leopards. Bruce is still the face, but Kaity has been taking more and more off his plate and is now the one who runs everything day to day.

She appears competent, but her entire career has been spent at the D3 level and with Bruce.  I fear she doesn't fully understand how a real D1 athletic department, even in the PL, should be run.

Does anyone really think BMac will not continue as AD if W's & L's are the only issue?

That is a fair assessment. But I don't think our athletic department has ever been run like a "real" D1 department, whatever that means. Even before Bruce. Bottom line is that Kaity is the best we have. I would think Moravian would like to hire her, but as a D3 school probably can't come close to what she is making now.

Any new news as to why George left?
