Professor Friel stepped down as Director of the Director of the Graduate Tax Program when he retired at the end of the 2016-2017 academic year after serving as the Director for more than 25 years. Emeritus Professor Friel will continue to teach in the Graduate Tax Program as an adjunct professor, as have Lawrence Lokken, Emeritus Hugh Culverhouse Eminent Scholar in Taxation and Emeritus Professors David Hudson and Patricia Dilley. Professor McMahon has been a member of the faculty of the UF Graduate Tax Program since 1997.

The exact search parameters will be forthcoming. At least one position will be an Eminent Scholar in Taxation chair and one will be a Professor of Practice position.

I had the pleasure of serving as a research assistant to Prof. McMahon and he will make an excellent Director. The Tax Program is lucky to have someone so talented.

Great move! Prof. McMahon is among the very best, and toughest, faculty I had the privilege of learning from at the undergraduate, J.D., and LL.M. levels. I have no doubt he will maintain the traditions of rigor and excellence in the program and be a fierce advocate going forward.
