Robert Morris athletic director Craig Coleman is stepping down, effective Dec. 7.

Dr. Craig Coleman, the director of athletics at Robert Morris, announced Monday that he is resigning effective on Dec. 7.

Coleman has served as athletic director for 13 years. He plans to return to the medical field. He was a practicing psychiatrist before coming to Robert Morris.

He also served as the Colonials softball coach.

“After a 13-year hiatus, I’ve decided to return to my previous career in medicine,” Coleman said. “I’m extremely grateful to the university for the opportunity to have served the athletic department as athletic director and coach.”

The university will conduct a search for Coleman’s successor.

Senior Associate Athletics Director Marty Galosi will step in as acting director. Assistant softball coach Jexx Verner has been named interim coach.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
