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