(D1) Southern Illinois University Carbondale

SIU’s next permanent athletic director will inherit solid coaches and some of the best facilities in the country, but could face big financial challenges. Mario Moccia, the Salukis’ outgoing athletic director, said his permanent successor will likely need to continue what he has started to battle those challenges. Dr. Harold Bardo, the new interim athletic director, is scheduled to take over Jan. 1st. President Randy Dunn said he prefers not to use a search firm to hire Moccia’s permanent replacement, but will leave it up to the SIU Board of Trustees. -Todd Hefferman, The Southern-
