Florida State University President Eric Barron said all along that he hoped his search for a new athletics director would be wrapped up before the start of football season.
He beat his deadline by nearly a month.
At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Barron is expected to introduce Stan Wilcox, the senior deputy director of athletics at Duke.
Wilcox, 54, previously served as senior deputy director of athletics at his alma mater, Notre Dame. While in South Bend, Ind., he had oversight of the football program.
Wilcox, who oversees football and several other areas of the Blue Devils’ program, spent 11 years as associate commissioner of the Big East Conference and also worked in the NCAA offices.
He is a former basketball player at Notre Dame and also is a past president of the Black Coaches Association (now Black Coaches & Administrators). Wilcox earned his law degree from Brooklyn Law School and is a member of the New York State Bar.
Wilcox replaces former athletics director Randy Spetman, who was dismissed in early June.
Ira Schoffel also writes for the Tallahassee Democrat.
