Scott Woodward, who has been serving as UW's acting athletic director since Jan. 31, will announce today whether he will officially enter the candidate pool to become the new permanent AD.
Woodward has said on several occasions that he is "leaning toward'' wanting to become the new AD. If he does, many consider him the favorite to become the new AD.
However, UW president Mark Emmert has also wondered aloud if Woodward might not be more valuable to the school in his current position as Vice President of External Affairs (read Woodward's bio here). Woodward and Emmert were expected to meet this week to discuss the situation, leading to Woodward's announcement today.
We reported two weeks ago that the school has hired an Atlanta search firm, paying a reported $75,000, to help with the process.
One source told the Times this week that the search committee has indeed been making calls and searching out candidates around the country.
Once Woodward makes his intentions known today I will pass that along here.
