Yow, who has been the AD at Maryland since 1994, is the sister of NC State legendary coach Kay Yow.
Yow has turned Maryland into one of the top athletic departments in the country. The Princeton Review named Maryland's athletics facilities as No. 1 in the nation in 2009, and last year the NCAA News named Maryland as one of the Top 10 athletics programs in the nation for the year.
In 2009 Maryland won two national championships, five teams earned ACC championships, 18 teams were represented in postseason competition and the program enjoyed an outstanding year in academic achievement and community service.
Indications are that a press conference could be held as early as this weekend to name the new athletics director.
