Ram sports greats, academic leaders, professional sports executives, students, campus and community representatives have been chosen to help find CSU's next athletic director.
Twenty-one people, all with ties to the university, have agreed to serve on the search committee, which will be chaired by Loren Crabtree, longtime CSU academic leader and former chancellor of the University of Tennessee. Crabtree will lead a national search to find the right person for the job.
“This group of people has demonstrated both a love for Colorado State University and a shared ambition for our future in athletics,” President Tony Frank said. “I will look to this group to help us find the leadership that will boost our athletic department to the next level. And with the amazing successes and broad backgrounds represented on this committee, I am confident they’ll do a great job.”
CSU has hired DHR International, one of the world’s leading search firms, to help find the right candidate for the job. DHR has led numerous searches for college athletic directors in the U.S. and coaches around the world.
Universities utilizing DHR’s services in past searches include Stanford, Maryland, Virginia, Miami, Kansas, Northwestern, and UC-Berkeley.
“Colorado State is a great public university and we believe this is one of the best jobs in the country,” said Glenn Sugiyama, executive vice president and Global Practice Leader of Sports for DHR’s Chicago office. “We’re looking forward to helping fill this important role to find the right leader to move the athletic department to the next level.”
In addition, the Associated Students of Colorado State and Student Athlete Advisory Council will have representatives on the committee.
