Mike Bobinski said Thursday night the addition of a second-in-command in the athletic department is “imminent.” Bobinski said the new position’s primary day-to-day responsibility will be to manage and coordinator the department’s external functions. But it won’t be an “instead of” proposition, Bobinski said. The new hire won’t replace the current heads of those external departments, which he identified as communications, marketing, branding, identity, licensing and handling the Learfield and Nike relationships, among other things. But the current employees in those spots will report to the new position.
