Dalhousie athletic director John MacDonald has stepped down effective immediately, according to an email sent to Dal staff late Monday afternoon.

Moore comes to her new position with a long history with Dal’s athletic programs. The former Tigers athlete and Olympian is a two-time inductee of the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame. She was also a six-year coach with the Tigers volleyball team.
MacDonald was appointed as athletic director on Dec. 17, 2009.
