UMaine’s Barron named special assistant to AD

... In the fixed-length position that runs through June 30, 2018, Barron’s primary responsibilities will be to represent the athletics department at public events and assist with fundraising for the Alfond Fund.

He will earn $53,000, the portion of the head coach’s salary that remained unused this year with the appointment of first-time college head coach Amy Vachon, who took the reins at midseason last year when Barron became ill.

Barron began his appointment as head coach on May 10, 2011. He guided the Black Bears to a pair of America East regular-season titles and three straight postseason appearances. ... ant-to-ad/

Richard Barron returns to UMaine after ‘maddening’ medical crisis
Barron, on medical leave since January, will take on a temporary adminstrative role for the athletic department.

...He’s now almost fully recovered and ready for work.

“I couldn’t stay on disability pay forever, nor would I want to,” Barron said. “We spoke about what might be a way to return and contribute to the university.”

In Barron’s new role, he will help with fundraising and represent the athletic department at functions.

“Richard has many talents that will be able to support our community engagement efforts over the next few months,” Creech said in a press release, “to help grow the Alfond Fund and spread the positive message of UMaine Athletics.” ... tive-role/
