Ralph L. Brewer has been named Frostburg State University's interim athletic director effective immediately, following the resignation of Diane Morea. Ms. Morea served as athletic director since July, 1999.
Brewer, a resident of Frostburg, has been a member of the FSU English Department since 1969, where he recently served as chair. He has been a strong supporter of Bobcat athletics, chair of the FSU Athletic Advisory Committee and the university's faculty representative for the steering committee of the Allegany Mountain Collegiate Conference.
"Ralph brings to the athletic director position an enthusiasm and knowledge of intercollegiate athletics and the ability to work well with others," says Dr. Catherine R. Gira, FSU president. "In addition, Ralph is a die-hard Bobcat fan and has traveled long distances to see our teams play."
A search for a permanent athletic director will begin later this year.
