A search committee at Pierce College has settled on three candidates to replace Bob O'Connor as athletic director.
The final candidates are Mary McWilliams, who presently serves as women's athletic director and, if selected, would fill both positions; Bob Lyons, a business professor and former baseball coach who is expected to be an assistant for the Pierce baseball program next year, and Erwin Goldblum, chairman of the men's physical education department and wrestling coach at Pierce.
Ed Bravo, a former athletic director, declined an invitation to be considered as a candidate, said Richard Moyer, assistant dean in charge of physical education and intercollegiate athletics.
The committee, headed by Pierce President David Wolf, will interview the candidates Wednesday. A decision is expected at the conclusion of those interviews, Moyer said. O'Connor resigned earlier this month.
