Chattanooga-(WDEF) UTC announced on Thursday that Mike Buddie has withdrawn his name from consideration for the athletic director's job. Buddie was one of three finalists the university brought in for interviews this week. Buddie has spent the last several years in the athletic department at Wake Forest after retiring from a career in major league baseball. Since Buddie has withdrawn, that leaves David Blackburn and Lee Fowler as the two remaining candidates. Blackburn is a senior associate athletic director at Tennessee, while Fowler is the current director of basketball operations for the Sun Belt Conference. UTC is expected to name their new athletic director in the next few days.
