• Lovell selects Amanda Braun as Milwaukee AD

    Sources have confirmed to PantherU that Amanda Braun will be the next Director of Milwaukee Athletics. An announcement is forthcoming but as yet unscheduled, where Chancellor Mike Lovell and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Michael Laliberte will formally introduce Braun as the new AD. Smart money says that will be some time this week.

    None of the sources knew of the terms for Braun's deal, only that her likely start date will be in early May.

    We at PantherU endorsed Paul Plinske from UW-Whitewater for the job, but we wholeheartedly support Amanda Braun as she takes the reigns of Milwaukee Athletics.

    Different sources had told PantherU over the weekend that the university's Open Forum feedback had been overwhelmingly in support of Plinske.

    PantherU.com will be following this story as it develops throughout the day.
