The SELC’s Buff Grubb steps down as president
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 20, 2011 (Greenville, SC). The SouthEastern Lacrosse Conference (SELC) announces the resignation of President Buff Grubb. Grubb stated in his resignation letter “I have been asked and have accepted the position as Co-Chair of the Greenville MCLA (Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association) Local Organizing Committee. I’m enough of a realist to know that I cannot perform both as Co-Chair and President of the SELC to my satisfaction.” The 2012 and 2013 MCLA National Championships will be held in Greenville.
Grubb will remain as President of the conference until August 19, the first day of the conference summer meetings and remain on the executive board as Past President. In response to Grubb’s resignation the SELC executive board voted unanimously to name Doug Horn, current SELC Vice President and Division 1 Director, as SELC President, effective August 19, 2011. Horn will conduct the summer meetings and present a slate of officers for election at the fall meeting in Atlanta September 18. Horn previously served as President of the SELC from 1995 to 2003. Florida State coach Bill Harkins has been appointed to fill the Division 1 Vice President position upon Horn becoming president.
Grubb has served as President of the conference since April 2003 and was Vice President from 1995 to 2003. Buff first coached in the SELC at the University of Tennessee from 1993 to 2001 winning four SELC championships. He took Tennessee to the MCLA national tournament in 1999, 2000 and 2001.
