Bill Myers, a longtime Tennessee athletic department staff member who rose to the rank of chief financial officer, has left the university.

Myers resigned his position as senior associate athletic director last week, UT spokesman Jimmy Stanton said Thursday.

In a letter of resignation to athletic director Dave Hart, obtained by the News Sentinel through an open records request, Myers said he was leaving due to “health issues aggravated by work related stress.” Myers offered to assist in the transition process. The letter was dated last Friday.

Myers was paid $170,000, according to salary information released by UT this summer. He could not be reached for comment.

Myers joined the department in 1998, according to the biography posted on UT’s website. He worked for five years in the development office before assuming his current role. Myers supervised “athletic business operations, including budgeting, personnel management, financial forecasting, purchasing, capital expense planning, and risk management,” according to the bio.

A native of Seymour, Myers has two degrees from UT.

Leaving in the middle of football season does not makes sense.

If he has serious health issues, he shouldn't have to wait until the end of the football season to retire. What is wrong with you people to think football comes before a man's health. Especially when we aren't even ranked. ;)

Wow! Resigning from a $170,000 a year job because of "job stress". Another sign that Dave Hart is difficult to work for?

I heard he developed an allergy to red ink and the UT athletic dept. is covered up in red ink.
