North Carolina

Hyman primary candidate for UNC's next AD

Posted September 20, 2011

The committee in charge of searching for a new athletic director at North Carolina met for two and a half hours Tuesday afternoon.

The committee is shortening the list of possible candidates to replace current athletic director Dick Baddour. Baddour asked a committee to begin looking for his replacement on July 28.

WRAL has learned that North Carolina's primary candidate is South Carolina athletic director Eric Hyman. Sources in Chapel Hill and Columbia, SC told WRAL there is mutual interest after conversations between Hyman and UNC this past weekend.

On Monday, the NCAA delivered a Notice of Allegations to South Carolina.  Athletes in football, men's basketball and women's track and field received over $47,000 in impermissible benefits. Many were receiving reduced housing rates at a local hotel. 

According to the UNC search committee, the NCAA and university's internal investigation into the Tar Heel football program and upcoming hearing with the NCAA committee on infractions is not affecting the pool of candidates.

"The candidates are very excited about the University of North Carolina and what we stand for athletically, academically," search committee member Lowry Caudill told WRAL Tuesday. "Our history of great academics and athletics, that’s speaking for itself and the candidate pool is literally a who’s who of the athletic director community in the United States."

Hyman began his duties at South Carolina on July 1, 2005. He came to South Carolina from TCU after being named the 2003-04 Street and Smith's Business Journal National Athletics Director of the Year and the Division I-A West Regional Athletics Director of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA).

Prior to TCU, Hyman was the athletics director at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and VMI in Lexington, Va., and Executive Associate Athletics Director at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C., and Associate Athletics Director at Furman University in Greenville, S.C.

Hyman graduated from the University of North Carolina where he played football and earned his master's degree in educational administration at Furman.

    Exactly!

    But they hired Butch, too, after he "cleaned up" at Miami! LOL

    Maybe Hyman will "clean up" at North Carolina they way he did at Carolina. :)

    Hmmmm....you gotta be kidding. The same type of violations have occurred at South Carolina during his watch and he is being considered at UNC for what reason???

  • Honesty first Sep 21, 2:44 p.m.

    Played golf with Hyman in Raleigh while he was ad at TCU. Really nice guy. I think he would take the UNC jod for a pay cut. He spoke very highly of UNC and how much he and his wife enjoyed Chapel Hill.

    At least you're honest, Smitty:)

    I had heard good things about Hyman until the link provided here to the possible trouble at USC. I'll wait and see how this shakes out.

    Is he going to resign from USC if he doesn't fire Spurrier?
