CHARLESTON, Ill. - An Eastern Illinois University official says the goal is for EIU to have it's new athletic director in place by August 1.  Eastern's Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Dan Nadler, has been appointed interim athletic director.  Nadler will serve in that role until the school finds a full-time replacement for Barbara Burke, who left earlier this month to become the new deputy athletic director and chief operating officer at Tulane University

“We will move forward in an efficient manner with the goal of having a new director in place by Aug. 1, 2014,” Nadler said in a news release. “During the interim, we will work hard as a team to continue the excitement and excellence Barbara Burke has created at EIU. We will continue to keep our student-athletes as the cornerstone of our efforts, striving to maximize their academic, athletic and personal development. “
