Onnidan's HBCUSports | Stacy Danley "officially" fired as athletics director at Alabama State

The Montgomery Advertiser has reported that after nearly four months of paid administrative leave and a contentious termination hearing, Alabama State fired athletic director Stacy Danley.Stacy DanleyDanley

Danley confirmed to the Montgomery Advertiser on Friday evening that a hearing officer had upheld several charges against him and that he had received a termination letter from the university on Wednesday, ending his two-plus-year tenure in charge of the Hornets’ athletic programs. He was hired at ASU in July, 2010.

“I’m very disappointed in how the hearing process played out,” Danley said. “I do appreciate the opportunity I was given, and I’ll never be able to replace the experience of working at ASU during the time of building a stadium. I worked with a lot of good people and great student-athletes.”

This is Danley's second stint as athletics director at an HBCU. He was the director of athletics at Tuskegee University from 2008-2009. Prior to going to Tuskegee, he had served as an intern at the Southeastern Conference commissioner's office in the areas of compliance and championships/events management.
