Kane appointed as co-chair to lead search for new athletics director
Dr. Mary Jo Kane, director of the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport and Kinesiology professor of sport sociology, was appointed by President Eric Kaler to co-lead the search for the University's new director of athletics to replace Joel Maturi, who is retiring June 30.
Kane will co-chair both the search advisory committee and a smaller search subcommittee with Tim Mulcahy, U of M vice president for research. "I'm honored and deeply humbled that President Kaler has the confidence and trust in me to help lead a critical search for the University of Minnesota," said Dr. Kane. "I am fortunate to be working with Vice President Tim Mulcahy, whose judgment related to leadership skills and characteristics is unsurpassed."
