Mike Buddie Interviews For UTC Athletic Director's Job
Chattanooga-(WDEF) UTC continues to interview their three finalists for the school's athletic director's job. On Tuesday, they had Mike Buddie on campus.
Buddie played 13 years of major league baseball, including a stint with the New York Yankees. He has spent the last seven years in the athletic department at his alma mata, Wake Forest. Buddie says one of the big appeals at Chattanooga is the opportunity to make some big hires right off the bat. Said Buddie,"And then certainly, any athletic director that gets to come in and make a key hire with the two basketball positions open here. That's like the perfect storm of athletic director 101. You get to come in and put your stamp on the program right away in a positive way."
