And there’s nothing “interim” about it.
Mizzou is slated to name Jim Sterk the new athletic director for their program very soon. Tons of sources on social and news media have come out with the good news. If you’ve noticed over the last couple weeks, Mizzou has gone through a huge number of interim-AD but that stops with Sterk.
Sterk, 60, is in his 7th year with San Diego State and was recently named AD of the year by National Association of College Director of Athletics. He’s also been with Portland State and powerhouse Washington State.
Sterk does seem to be more basketball minded, but it’s worth noting that San Diego State’s football program just had their best year in almost a decade last year under Sterk’s watch so lots of good and stability should be coming with this hire.
Plus his name sounds like “Stark” so there’s bound to be some Iron Man puns made over the next 6 years.
