It didn’t take long for Texas A&M to find a new athletics director, as the Aggies’ new leader will be Washington athletics director Scott Woodward, according to Chip Brown of HornsDigest.com.
The news comes on the heels of Eric Hyman’s resignation on Tuesday.
Woodward has held the same position at Washington, since January of 2008. Before taking over as AD, Woodward held several other positions at the university outside of the athletic department.
He also served in non-athletic department roles at LSU from 2000-04. Woodward graduated from LSU with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
Woodward will enter Texas A&M at a pivotal time for the football program, which went 8-5 this season.
Many analysts believe that 2016 will be extremely important for the future of Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin, but Texas A&M president Michael K. Young offered his support of Sumlin Tuesday in a statement made by a university spokesman via Twitter.
