Former Boston College athletic director Martin Jarmond is replacing the retiring Dan Guerrero in the role at UCLA next week.
Under Armour may get out of its UCLA contract but it has recommitted to another division one school. The apparel company also agreed to supply the school with an average of $7.4 million in clothing, shoes and equipment each school year while contributing $2 million over an eight-year span toward athletic facility upgrades.
Company officials could not immediately be reached to comment on whether it would seek to end similar deals with other universities. The Bruins boasts 118 NCAA team championships and at least 134 national championships.
Under Armour also has apparel deals with schools including Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Auburn, Texas Tech and Utah, according to its website.
The move comes after the Baltimore, Maryland-based Under Armor reported a sales decline of 23 per cent during the first quarter amid the global Covid-19 pandemic, which forced stores shut and led to a significant decline in discretionary consumer spending.
In terms of performance, both Under Armour and UCLA have struggled in recent years.
