Former KU Athletic Director Dies
06/13/2009

(AP) - Bob Frederick, an accomplished college athletic administrator who took lots of heat for hiring an obscure assistant named Roy Williams, has died.

The 69-year-old Frederick sustained head injuries in a bicyling accident on Thursday near the University of Kansas campus, where he lived.

He died at University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., according to family spokeswoman Kelly Hale.

In 1989, as athletic director at Kansas, he passed up dozens of experienced basketball coaches and took a chance on Williams, who was the No. 2 assistant at North Carolina.

Frederick's family issued a statement thanking all their family and friends for their support.
