St. Bonaventure University may have to begin looking for a new head of its athletic department.
According to a source, Athletic Director Steve Watson has accepted the same position at Loyola University Chicago.
Bonaventure athletic officials have declined comment.
Watson was named Bonaventure AD in 2006 after spending four years as an associate AD at Eastern Michigan. He had played professional basketball for six years in Europe and Asia after playing college basketball at Rutgers and Bowling Green.
Watson is currently the last member of his family employed by Bonaventure.
Watson’s late father, John, was a business professor, dean, and vice president for academic affairs. His late brother, also John, was a management professor. And his mother, Suzanne, is a retired computer science professor.
