HAMMOND, LA - Southeastern Louisiana University announced Thursday the resignation of Athletics Director Bart Bellairs who joined the institution in November of 2009.

"I appreciate the dedication and integrity that Bart brought to administration of our athletics program," said President John Crain.  "Bart has been a stalwart advocate for operating our athletics program in a way that is focused on the overall success of the student athlete."

In announcing he will recommend to the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors that current Head Baseball Coach Jay Artigues be appointed Interim Athletics Director, Crain lauded Artigues for his successful tenure with the baseball program.
