Former AD Scott Stricklin left Starkville for Florida and reports for duty in Gainesville on Nov. 1.
Earlier Tuesday, he released a letter he wrote to the Mississippi State family.
Wetherbee was the school’s senior associate athletic director for external affairs.
Less than an hour before his new position was announced, Wetherbee tweeted congratulations to Stricklin.
