Duke Promotes Kennedy, Hires Corrigan’s Son

Director of Athletics Kevin White promoted veteran Senior Associate Director of Athletics Chris Kennedy to deputy athletic director in a statement Tuesday. Kennedy, an English professor and Duke athletic department member since 1977, served as interim athletic director after Joe Alleva left for Louisiana State University and before White was hired from Notre Dame. Kennedy will still be responsible for day-to-day operations, compliance and academic support.

In other athletic department news, White announced the hiring of former Notre Dame staffers Stan Wilcox and Boo Corrigan as senior administrators. Corrigan is the son of former ACC commissioner and Duke graduate Gene Corrigan, who served as a consultant in Duke’s search to replace Alleva and seemed to play an instrumental role in bringing White to Duke.

    When are we going to read an article about Becca Ward, the incoming Duke freshman who won a Bronze Medal (the first medals of the games, to boot) a few days ago for fencing @ the Beijing Olympics?

    The announcers kept asking her if she was going to tell her new roommate at Duke about her medal win.

    We wrote a post about Ward’s bronze medal, and we wrote a mini-profile of her in July. Check out the link below:
