Ford Stepping Down as Athletic Director

After weeks of problems between the baseball team and the athletics department, Savannah State University is making some changes. Athletic director Hank Ford has asked to be relieved of his duties, citing health reasons. Ford will remain in the department as an assistant for eligibility and compliance.

The search for a new athletic director is underway. In the meantime, SSU residential services director Irvin Clark will run the athletics department.
