OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) — Monmouth University is promoting deputy athletic director Jeff Stapleton to replace Marilyn McNeil as head of the department. University president Patrick Leahy announced the promotion and said it would be effective in July. McNeil announced her retirement earlier this year after 28 years at the helm of the Hawks. Stapleton has spent the last 31 years at the school in New Jersey. He has overseen the development and construction of several fields and facilities for the school’s mid-major Division I athletics. The Hawks are members of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
