Shepherd University officials will name a new athletic director for the school, allowing head football coach Monte Cater to focus solely on his coaching job and teaching, Shepherd University President David L. Dunlop said Monday.
Karl Wolf will take over the position as school athletic director this summer, Dunlop said.
Cater has served as athletic director and head football coach, although those positions are typically separated at other universities, Dunlop said.
Dunlop said he has been trying to work out a plan under which Cater could drop his athletic director's job and focus on coaching and teaching. The deal worked out when Wolf, the university's director of admissions, expressed an interest in the athletic director's job, Dunlop said.
