It looks like natural turnover to me and not like someone got the ax. Sam Kwak used to be the Director of Admission and according to his LinkedIn profile he moved from IUB to an admissions position at Northwestern within the same month (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/sam-kwak/2/761/101). If Sam had gotten the ax rather than turning over as part of career progression, I'd expect some noticeable gap in the employment timeframes.
William R LaFleur II, the Interim Director, is a recent Maurer graduate. I don't know the world of law school admissions staffing very well, but I know that at least for undergraduate institutions it is very common to take on recent graduates in one-year positions. In terms of Bill as the person to step into that role, I think he was a good choice for Maurer. I've had some interaction with Bill and found him very helpful during my visit and in other follow-up work.
Sam Kwak is DICK, and the school is better off without him.
