It has been announced that UNCG Athletic Director Kim Record has resigned effective today, Friday, Sept. 3.
A letter from UNCG Chancellor Frank Gilliam states, “After 12 years, Kimberly Record is stepping down as Director Of Intercollegiate Athletics at UNC Greensboro as of September 3.”
Gilliam’s letter gives no indication of why Record resigned effective immediately or why she resigned at all.
Most of Gilliam’s letter sings Record’s praises and goes into detail about the success of her tenure as UNCG athletic director.
Gilliam states, “During her tenure, Kim has guided UNCG to success on and off the court, with 15 SoCon championships in our various sports over the last 12 years, including five teams winning Southern Conference championships in 2017-18, with four of those teams advancing to their respective NCAA Tournaments. In addition, UNCG’s student-athletes have regularly earned some of their highest GPAs ever during Kim’s tenure.”
Gilliam also states, “In addition to making an impact at UNCG, Kim is a nationally well-respected administrator and has often been consulted by fellow Athletic Directors in our conference on national issues.”
And he praises Record for her fundraising ability stating, “Kim was also instrumental in helping drive the UNCG Athletics’ Campaign for Champions, a fundraising campaign-initiative to transform student-athlete academic and support facilities, and to recruit and retain top coaches to lead UNCG’s 17 Division I athletic teams. Over $3.1 million has been raised to date.”
Gilliam states that Executive Associate Athletic Director for External Operations Keven Bostian will serve as interim director of intercollegiate athletics and that a national search will be launched to search for a new athletic director.
UNCG’s head basketball coach Wes Miller left in April to become the head coach of the University of Cincinnati basketball team. Miller had been at UNCG for 10 years and had 20-win seasons in each of his last five years.
