Our very own self-appointed “CEO” CRR Matt Robinson has been named acting director of intercollegiate athletics and recreation services at the University of Delaware, effective Dec. 31, 2015—the day of our annual “Wring Out the Old, Ring in the New” trail run.

Coincidence? Not a chance.

However, having said that, for his first order of business, most Creek Road Runners feel strongly that his first and foremost order of business should be to right a wrong by reinstating the men’s DI running programs at UD and bringing back beloved former UD coach and CRR Jim Fischer.

A pipe dream? Maybe. But never doubt the spirit and influence of a man who appoints himself as a “CEO.”

Robinson replaces Eric Ziady, who announced he was stepping down from the post. Congratulations, Matt!
