Florida Gators athletic director Jeremy Foley announced Monday that he will retire in October. Per

In the end, Foley is retiring as the University of Florida's athletics director after an unprecedented run of success leading one of the nation's top athletic programs. The 63-year-old Foley informed his administrative staff and Florida's head coaches on Monday morning that after 40 years at the University Athletic Association – the last 25 seasons as head of the organization – he will retire effective Oct. 1.

"You always want to leave an organization in good shape,'' Foley said during a 30-minute interview in his Ben Hill Griffin Stadium office Friday morning. "Right now, we obviously have a great group of coaches, we have had a good year and we've got things moving in the right direction. I just think that makes it a good time to transition."

Big loss for college athletics. 27 national titles in 13 sports and if their baseball team wins it all, it will be 28 national titles in 14 sports. Unheard of.

Best AD in my lifetime. Understood hiring good coaches and investing into programs would maximize monetization. The anti-Joe Dean.

Good!!!! His hires have been way too good nearly every single time. Now maybe the rest of us can win SEC Championships in the other sports.
