Cross said in an emailed statement Monday that he is resigning at the conclusion of the Missouri Valley Conference women’s basketball tournament. The event runs March 12-15 in St. Charles, Missouri.
The statement didn’t provide a reason for Cross’ planned departure. He said without elaboration that he wanted to thank university leaders and students for the five years he spent as Bradley athletic director. He took the job in 2010.
University President Joanne K. Glasser called Cross “a man of high ethical standards, integrity and character” and thanked him for his work.
The statement did not mention plans to hire a successor.
