COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A school spokeswoman says Citadel athletic
director Les Robinson is retiring.

Spokeswoman Noelle Orr says Robinson has planned a news conference Friday to make a formal announcement.

Robinson is a former North Carolina State basketball coach and athletic director. He came to The Citadel in July 2000.

Robinson has helped South Carolina's military college heal rifts with author and alumnus Pat Conroy as well as paralyzed ex-Bulldog Marc Buoniconti.

Fundraisers have been held at the school to add to the millions of dollars that Buoniconti has helped raise to find a cure for paralysis. The decades-long effort has made the former Citadel player's name nearly synonymous with his cause.
