KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- University of Missouri-Kansas City athletics director Tim Hall is leaving for an AD job at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.

His resignation is effective July 1. Hall said in a news release that he's confident "things are headed in the right direction" at UMKC. The Baltimore campus is close to his extended family.

Hall has been the athletics director at UMKC since 2007. He previously served as the associate athletics director for development at Kent State University.

During Hall's tenure, UMKC has won conference championships in men's soccer, men's golf, men's tennis and softball. Hall also announced this spring the hiring of Louisville assistant Kareem Richardson as head men's basketball coach.

UMKC's interim AD will be Carla Wilson, currently senior associate athletics director for business and administration.
