CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) - In a story March 27 about the resignation of Eastern Illinois University’s athletic director, The Associated Press erroneously reported the location of the school’s campus. EIU is in Charleston, not Macomb.

A corrected version of the story is below:

EIU athletic director taking job at Tulane

Eastern Illinois athletic director taking job at Tulane University

CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) - Eastern Illinois Athletic Director Barbara Burke is leaving the school to take a job at Tulane University.

EIU said Thursday that Burke will be deputy director of athletics and chief operating officer at Tulane starting in late April. Burke was at EIU for six years. She was hired at the Charleston campus in June 2008 after spending time in senior administration at the University of Wyoming.

Burke’s work at Tulane will include day-to-day athletic program operations. The school is transitioning to the American Athletic Conference next academic year.

Burke also serves as chair of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Rules committee and on the NCAA Championships cabinet.
