There’s been a change of leadership in the Niagara University athletic department. Tom Crowley is no longer the school’s athletic director, said Tom Burns, the university’s associate vice president for publications, communications and marketing.

Burns said the school is not issuing any statement or giving any comment.

Steve Butler will be acting as interim AD for Niagara. He is the associate director of athletics/external relations. He has served as interim athletic director before, when Ed McLaughlin left Niagara to take the top job at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Crowley was hired by Niagara last October.
