Colorado St. fires AD Graham

Fort Collins, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Jack Graham was fired as athletic director at Colorado State on Friday after just 32 months on the job.

The former Rams quarterback was hired in December 2011 to replace the fired Paul Kowalczyk.

Colorado State President Tony Frank said Graham's deputy, John Morris, will serve as interim athletic director until a permanent replacement is found.

"While I am grateful to Jack for the energy he's brought to CSU in establishing a culture that expects excellence within Ram athletics and his actions in hiring great coaches and staff, there have come to exist some substantial differences in our views," Frank said in a statement.

"Based on our differences, I have chosen to exercise the termination for convenience clause within Jack's contract to allow the university and the athletic department to move forward, building on the successes that Jack brought to our program. As a personnel issue, this will be the university's only comment on this personnel action.

"Our athletic department has made great strides in the last few years, and I wholeheartedly expect that progress to continue. This in no way diminishes our institutional commitment to excellence in athletics. We're excited about the future of our program and looking forward to a great year."

Graham played for the Rams from 1973-74 and graduated from Colorado State in 1975 with a bachelor's degree in U.S. history, later becoming a successful businessman.
