"After many days of watching, reading and listening to the outrage of our country and the ongoing perpetuation of violence on people of color, and reflecting as a mother of a Black son and Black daughters, wife to a Black man, as a Black female athletics director, and as a person responsible for shaping and molding the lives of our student-athletes, my thoughts and feelings will not be enough in this battle against systemic racism.
I COMMIT TO INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP TO EFFECT CHANGE.
The North Carolina Central University Department of Athletics stands in solidarity in the fight for justice, equality and peace. As Eagles, we have a long history of being on the front lines for educating and advocating for people of color, our marginalized communities and the City of Durham.
We will utilize our collective voices to peacefully promote love and unity, while mourning and healing one another through these times of unrest and loss.
As a family, we stand together as student-athletes, coaches, administrators, and support staff from all walks of life in the fight against injustice to galvanize the #BlackLivesMatter movement."
- Dr. Ingrid Wicker McCree, North Carolina Central University Director of Athletics

WASHINGTON (June 8, 2020) – Howard University Department of Athletics grieves the loss of Fallen Bison, Timothy “Tim” McDougle, who died Tuesday, May 26 due to complications from the coronavirus (COVID-19) at age 53.
McDougle was a member of the 1987 football team that went 9-1 overall with a perfect 5-0 mark in league play. That season, Howard won its first Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Championship that ultimately enshrined them into the 2014 HU Athletics Hall of Fame.
After his playing days on the gridiron, McDougle returned to his alma mater and served 26 years. From 1998 to 2002, he was part of the University’s Office of Student Accounts. Later, he joined HU’s Division of Student Affairs in the Office of Residence Life for 16 years (2002-18).
During his time in Student Affairs, McDougle served as Supervisor of Billing and Adjustment while playing an active role in creating and developing programs to engage student leaders. He made a positive impact on members of the University community. Notably, McDougle created and led the Green Team for Residence Life, which encouraged a much broader impact on University-wide recycling and conservation efforts.
A celebration of Tim's life is to be announced at a later date.
Recently, Tim’s family have started a GoFundMe account to cover all expenses. To donate, please click here.
