BROOMFIELD, Colo. (AP) -- Mike Bohn says he was blindsided by the University of Colorado's decision to make a change at athletic director.
He says he had a short conversation with chancellor Philip DiStefano, who made it clear the school wanted to head in another direction and that a switch might trigger better opportunities to raise money.
Soon after, Bohn submitted his resignation after eight years in charge of the athletic program. He will depart on Monday.
Bohn defended his track record in a 45-minute speech on Thursday at a nearby hotel, even distributing a seven-page handout detailing accomplishments, fundraising numbers and facility investments. He says "the insinuation that we don't have a plan is offensive at best."
As for why he's no longer athletic director, Bohn simply says, "I don't know."
