Gary Gray; Athletic Director - UAF>>"You know, I decided that it's time for some new challenges and new adventures. It's been great here. It's a great professional opportunity. I think we've accomplished a lot and now it's time to look for some other challenges at another program. I've had the pleasure of working with some amazing people here in Fairbanks. Four outstanding chancellors, they've all been very supportive of athletics. I thank each of them for the opportunity and the leadership they've provided to the Athletics Program. A special thank you to our staff, our student athletes here, the community of Fairbanks, the state of Alaska. It's been a great five years and I've really really enjoyed it."
