Stanford Denies Report That Maryland's Kevin Anderson Will Be New Athletic Director

Both sides are now denying reports that surfaced Monday afternoon that Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson was set to take the same position at Stanford University. Anderson came out quickly and issued a denial to The Washington Post, and now sources in the Bay Area are stating that Stanford is not close to finishing its search for a new AD.

Anderson is a Bay Area native and once served as fund-raiser at Stanford and he certainly seems like a potential fit for the Cardinal. But Tim FitzGerald of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that they are now close to naming him the AD in Palo Alto:

A Stanford spokesperson Monday denied a report that Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson was in contract negotiations with Stanford to head its athletic department.

[...]

The committee is "not even close" to completing its work, a source close to the committee said Monday afternoon.

Anderson was named AD at Maryland in 2010, signing a five-year contract for that position. But the Stanford job opened this summer when Cardinal AD Bob Bowlsby left the school to become Commissioner of the Big 12.

Kevin Anderson Denies Reports That He Is Leaving Maryland For Stanford

University of Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson denied reports that he was leaving for Stanford University. Anderson talked to the Washington Post hours after a report in the San Francisco Chronicle said that he was taking the Stanford job pending salary negotiations.

Anderson's denial from the Washington Post report:

"I haven't talked to anybody from Stanford University about their athletics director position or any other position," Anderson told the Post's Jason Reid in a telephone interview. "I have not accepted another job. I have not talked to anyone about another job. This [report] is incorrect."

Anderson's tenure at Maryland has been difficult. He took the job in 2010, signing a five-year contract. Since then, budget deficits have forced him to cut several smaller sports as the school scrambles to address what could be a $17 million hole by 2017. He has also drawn fire for the decision to hire Randy Edsall as the head football coach and the men's basketball team missing the postseason during both his first two years.
