Temple AD Bill Bradshaw to retire

By Andrea Adelson

Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw will retire in June after 11 years leading the Owls athletic department.

Bradshaw says he has to turn his full attention to unspecified family issues. He begins a leave of absence on Friday.

"My last 11 years [at Temple] were the most challenging but the most satisfying I had in this business," Bradshaw told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Being a part of that bumpy, rocky ride was the most satisfying."
