After a mere four years as Georgetown’s Director of Athletics, Bernard Muir will be leaving for a post at the University of Delaware. Before coming to Georgetown, Muir served as the Deputy Director of Athletics at Notre Dame and as Director of the Division I NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.
So, why he’s he making switch? Casual Hoya has some theories:
Muir’s seemingly odd move from the Big East to the Colonial Athletic Association has been linked to a variety of factors, ranging from his relationship with Georgetown President Jack DeGoia after interviewing for the same post at both Duke and Northwestern, his tense relationship with John Thompson (II), and simply a desire to go to a school that has a better football program, which is how AD’s really make their mark.
