Sep. 08, 2018
SCOOBA, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi community college is naming its athletic director as interim president, after a previous interim leader resigned.
East Mississippi Community College announced Friday that Randall Bradberry will become interim president beginning Monday, while a search for a permanent president continues.
Rick Young, president of the Scooba-based college for 11 years, resigned Monday after coming out of retirement to be interim leader. Young told trustees he felt they didn't have confidence in his leadership.
Former president Thomas Huebner resigned to seek the presidency at Meridian Community College.
Bradberry became East Mississippi's athletic director in 2016. He was the school's football coach for 12 years before moving to another school and then to work for the state Community College Board.
Trustees extended the application deadline for permanent president to Oct. 31.
