The search for a new athletic director is nearly complete. Dean of Student Services Daniel Stewart has chaired a search committee that has narrowed its list of candidates to four people.
Their names haven’t been disclosed due to confidentiality, but interviews with the potential replacements of Dave Barnett will take place within the next two weeks. Flagler College President Dr. William T. Abare Jr. hopes to have the new AD before the end of the fiscal year.
“I’m hoping that by the end of April we’ll have a new athletic director. My guess is we’ll make a very fast decision where there won’t be any dilly-dallying around,” Abare said.
The expectations for the new AD will include more focus on administration.
“We are at a point where the administration of the Athletic Department needs to take up more time,” Abare said.
