Earlier this evening, I was able to confirm that Bobby Valentine is a candidate to be Sacred Heart University’s next Athletic Director.
Bobby V has been in professional baseball since 1968 – as a player, coach and analyst. He was fired as the manager of the Boston Red Sox in October after a dismal 69-win season. Valentine, 62, hails from Stamford, where he was a star athlete at Rippowam High before playing baseball at USC and the bigs.
The new SHU AD will take the reins from C. Donald Cook, a 50 year veteran of college athletics. The beloved administrator will retire in the summer of 2013.
