USF athletic director steps down from post

The University of San Francisco announced that Debra Gore-Mann will be stepping down as the athletic director to pursue other opportunities.

Her resignation will be effective Sept. 17.

Gore-Mann had a positive emphasis on the academic success of USF’s student-athletes, the improved competitiveness in the West Coast Conference, and for her contributions to the many collaborative relationships on campus.

“I wish to thank the University for giving me the opportunity to provide leadership for USF athletics during the last four years,” Gore-Mann said. “It was very rewarding working with the coaches, student-athletes, families, staff and alumni. USF has excellent coaches in place and I wish USF athletics continued success both academically and athletically.”

USF plans to launch a nationwide search for a new athletic director. Charles Cross, USF’s vice president of business and finance, who currently oversees the department, will assume responsibility for operations until an interim director is named.
