Mal Moore nominated as Top Athletic Director


The University of Alabama’s Athletic Director Mal Moore has been nominated as one of the top five finalist for Athletic Director of the Year award.

The award is given every year by the Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily.

The other four finalists are Dick Baddour from North Carolina, Dab Guerrero from UCLA, Gene Smith from Ohio State, and Gene Bleymaier from Boise State.

Moore played football at the University of Alabama from 1958- 1962 under coach Bear Bryant. He has served as the Tide’s Athletic Director since 1999. While some of his previous hires have been scrutinized and may have almost cost him his job. He now has his man coaching and has been instrumental in the ever-growing Bryant Denny Stadium expansions, as well as expansions to Coleman Coliseum and new stadiums for the tennis, soccer and softball teams.
