Dave Hart steps down as AD

Florida State Athletic Director Dave Hart stepped down today.

Dave Hart announced today to the media that he was stepping down as Athletic Director at Florida State University. A couple months ago there were reports that Hart would not be getting his contract renewed.

In 1999, Hart signed a 10-year extension that would have kept him on through 2009, but as a result of building strain between Weatherall and Hart; his resignation from FSU was expedited. In the separation agreement, the University agreed to pay $475,000 to pay off the remainder of his contract.

An interim AD will be officially named tomorrow.

More to come on this story later.
