SUE DORAN NAMED CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

CHARLOTTE — Sue Doran, who has been assistant athletics director for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools for the past five years, has been promoted, according to the Charlotte Observer. She is the new county athletic director, replacing Vicki Hamilton, who retired in February.

Doran, 55, had served as interim athletics director since Hamilton’s move. Hamilton was an educator for 34 years, spending the last 17 as CMS AD. Doran said her old assistant AD job will not be filled.

Doran played basketball and volleyball at Division II schools North Georgia and West Georgia. She got her masters’ degree from West Georgia and started her coaching career there, as a head softball and assistant women’s basketball coach.

She coached at East Tennessee State for 20 years under then women’s coach Susan Yow. Doran also had stops at Drake, Kansas State and UNC-Wilmington. She worked with current N.C. State AD Debbie Yow in the Maryland athletics office and eventually worked with the late Kay Yow with the N.C. State women’s program and also at Providence College.
