March 21 (Bloomberg) -- University of Alabama Athletic Director Mal Moore is leaving after more than 14 years in the position because of undisclosed health problems.

Moore, 73, played football at Alabama under former coach Paul “Bear” Bryant from 1958-62 and became an assistant coach under Bryant after graduating from the school. Moore has been a part of 10 national championship football teams as a player, coach and athletic director, a role he assumed in 1999.

Moore’s resignation takes effect immediately and he becomes a special assistant to Alabama President Judy Bonner, the school said in a statement.

“I am at a point that I can no longer fulfill my duties as athletics director in the true championship manner the position requires,” Moore said. “While I have to focus on my health issue, I look forward to maintaining an ongoing working relationship with this great university.”

Alabama’s football program has won three national titles in the past four years.
