The University of Colorado named former women's basketball coach Ceal Barry interim athletic director Tuesday, the school announced.

Barry replaces Mike Bohn, who resigned earlier in the day with three years left on his contract.

University of Colorado Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano said Barry's appointment is effective June 3.

Barry is currently serving as the school's associate athletic director for student services and senior woman administrator. Before that, she led the women's basketball team to 12 NCAA tournament appearances in 22 seasons, including six Sweet 16 and three Elite Eight appearances before retiring in 2005 as the school's all-time leader in victories.

“Ceal’s experience, leadership and credibility with our athletic staff and stakeholders make her an ideal person to assume this important role as we search for new leadership,” said DiStefano.

More from CUBuffs.com:

Hired as the women’s head basketball coach in 1983 by then-athletic director Eddie Crowder, she has a 30-year history of involvement in CU athletics.  Over 95 percent of her student-athletes graduated and 85 of her players earned Academic All-Conference honors.
