james duboseWinston-Salem State’s loss is Elizabeth City State’s gain.

James DuBose, who has been an assistant athletics director at WSSU for the last eight years, is expected to be named the next athletics director at Elizabeth City State.

DuBose, 45, has been instrumental in raising funds for athletics during his time at WSSU and helped raise more than $3.1 million.

DuBose will be the third former WSSU assistant AD who will be in charge of a CIAA school following Anthony Bennett (Fayetteville State) and George Knox (Shaw).

DuBose could not be reached for comment, but an announcement was expected to be made on Monday.

Last week Elizabeth City State made the announcement that George Bright, who had been the athletics director for nearly four years, was no longer at the university.
