Mal Moore, who has been intertwined with Alabama athletics for more than 50 years, is stepping down as athletics director after experiencing health problems. Moore, 73, was hospitalized at Duke University Medical Center last week with pulmonary problems. His resignation is effective immediately, according to the university, and he will take on the role of special assistant to university president Judy Bonner.
quote:

"As many of you may know, due to factors related to my health, I am at a point that I can no longer fulfill my duties as athletics director in the true championship manner the position requires," Moore said. "While I have to focus on my health issue, I look forward to maintaining an ongoing working relationship with this great university as special assistant to Dr. Bonner. I know I can count on each of you to continue your unequaled support for me and the University of Alabama."
