Toledo won't renewA.D.'s contract
TOLEDO -- The University of Toledo has decided not to renew the contract of athletics director Pete Liske.
Interim president William Decatur said the decision was based on a recommendation by the university's board of trustees. Liske's contract expires June 30.
Liske, 60, has been athletics director for five years. He has an unlisted number and could not be reached to comment.
"The interim president and the board of trustees have concluded that we have lost confidence in his management and his leadership, and we need to move on," James Tuschman, chairman of the board of trustees, said at a Saturday news conference.
Among the problems encountered by Liske was a $350,000 deficit in the $12 million athletic department operating budget last year.
Liske was hired in June 1996 from Idaho University. He replaced Al Bohl, who left to become AD at Fresno State.
An interim director or a team of interim directors will run the department until an AD is named, Tuschman said.
