UNC Charlotte chancellor Phil Dubois has a message for fans who would like to see a shakeup at the top of the university’s athletics department. “I don’t think it’s time to make a change in the (athletics director),” Dubois said Wednesday morning. Speaking on WFNZ’s “Mac Attack” radio program, Dubois praised the job athletics director Judy Rose has done during her 27-year tenure, despite recent struggles in the football and men’s basketball programs. The football team just wrapped up a 1-11 season in the program’s fifth year of existence. The men’s basketball team hasn’t been to the NCAA tournament since 2005 and shows few signs of returning any time soon. Attendance for both sports has declined. Dubois pointed to the success of nationally prominent 49ers programs such as men’s soccer and golf, as well as Rose’s record of hiring coaches in nonrevenue sports who succeed at Charlotte and are plucked by schools from “Power Five” conferences. – DAVID SCOTT, charlotteobserver.comRead More
