Minutes ago Army announced Dan McCarthy as Interim Athletic Director. McCarthy will fill the vacancy left by Boo Coorigan leaving to take the AD job at NC State.
McCarthy graduated from USMA where he played Sprint Football in 1990 and retired from the Army in 2017, attaining the rank of Colonel.
McCarthy then served as Director of Football Operations for Jeff Monken before Coorigan named him Associate Athletic Director for Administration.
I am humbled by the opportunity and proud to serve the more than 1,000 cadet-athletes that are on our teams in providing them with an extraordinary Division I athletic experience while developing leaders of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor and Country.
The AWPAA announced last week that they have begun a nationwide search for a new Athletic Director led by College Sports Associates. Which means that McCarthy is nothing but a place holder until the new AD is announced.
