      Van Alstine resigns as WIU Athletic Director

      Dr. Tim Van Alstine resigned as Western Illinois University Athletic Director on Tuesday.

      Van Alstine served as athletic director there since July 2001.

      The university hasn't named a permanent replacement, according to a press release issued by WIU.

      WIU will conduct a national search summer.

      Assistant Athletics Director and Senior Women's Administrator Lisa-Melz Jennings will serve as interim athletic director until the search is complete. Melz-Jennings has been a member of the WIU athletics staff since 1998.
