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.
