Danley has has served as the Hornet's athletic director for a little more than 25 months, said from his home in Auburn that there were “fundamental differences (on) how you operate, but let’s see how we can get past this adversity.”
“Alabama State, with or without Stacy Danley, has a chance to be extremely special,” he added. “There has been a tremendous amount of progress made since I’ve been the athletic director. I’m still the athletic director there and I’m so excited about the future at Alabama State.”
Whether Danley will be allowed to return to his position following the “pending personnel matter” is uncertain.
Danley is the ninth AD at ASU in the past 11 years.
