The University moved quickly to find someone to temporarily fill the open role.

The University of Colorado moved quickly today to name Ceal Barry the interim athletic director after announcing that former AD Mike Bohn had resigned earlier today.

Barry is a legend and a leader at the University and is a good choice to keep things running smoothly until a permanent decision has been made. The pressure remains squarely on the administration to find a replacement for Bohn that can take this athletic department to new heights and fix the string of wrong turns that have plagued this organization for the last decade plus.

University of Colorado Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano has named Adele Cecilia "Ceal" Barry interim director of intercollegiate athletics for the university, effective Monday, June 3.

Barry currently serves as associate athletic director for student services and senior woman administrator (an NCAA designation) in the department. She replaces Mike Bohn, who submitted his resignation today.

Hired as the women's head basketball coach in 1983 by then-athletic director Eddie Crowder, she has a 30-year history of involvement in CU athletics. She retired from coaching in 2005 as CU's winningest coach ever in all sports (427 victories), leading her teams to 12 NCAA tournament appearances, including six Sweet 16 and three Elite Eight appearances. Over 95 percent of her student-athletes graduated and 85 of her players earned Academic All-Conference honors.

"Ceal's experience, leadership and credibility with our athletic staff and stakeholders make her an ideal person to assume this important role as we search for new leadership," said DiStefano.
