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.
