UW assistant AD off to Northern Illinois

Jeff Compher, executive assistant athletic director at UW, is leaving his post to become athletic director at Northern Illinois University.

Compher was a key man in UW sports scheduling, and a very good guy. Certainly wishing him all the best in his new post.

We spoke with acting athletic director Scott Woodward on Tuesday, and he said Compher will remain at UW through June, and that his eventual departure will come at a time that shouldn't cause much problem.

Meanwhile, Woodward said he still hasn't decided if he's going to be a candidate for the permanent AD job.
