Oregon Athletic Directors are expected to announce their resignations in the coming days.

The Associated Press and The Oregonian/OregonLive first reported the news.

Former Oregon Athletic Association President Mark Gillman was among those to announce his retirement from the job, which he took in late March.

Gillman has been a strong advocate for the state and the Pac-12 Conference, and served as the Pac’s chief operating officer from 2009 to 2015.

He will remain in his current role with the Oregon athletic department, which has an average attendance of 9,097.

He also serves as an honorary member of the Pac 12 Conference Board of Directors.

He will remain a member of Oregon’s Board of Trustees until at least July 2021.

A few dozen other former Oregon athletic directors have announced their retirement, including former head coach Dana Altman, who announced he was stepping down at the end of the season.

Oregon is in the midst of a search for its next AD, and there are a number of potential candidates.

The AP and The Associated School Football League reported that the board of trustees will be interviewing candidates this week.
