The University of Maryland named Damon Evans as athletic director on Monday, a job in which Temple athletic director Patrick Kraft was a candidate.
Evans has served as executive athletic director since 2016 and acting athletic director since April 2018, overseeing all day-to-day operations of the department. Besides Kraft, the other candidate was former Tennessee athletic director John Currie.
Maryland's job opened when Kevin Anderson went on a six-month sabbatical in October and stepped down in April. He is currently the interim athletic director at Cal State Northridge.
Kraft was named Temple's athletic director in May 2015 after serving two years as deputy athletic director.
On Monday, Kraft was unavailable for comment.
