The decision removes the existing interim title for Banks, who held the post in an interim capacity for more than 18 months while also serving as the head coach of the Southern University men’s basketball program. “I was pleased to recommend Mr. Roman Banks to assume the role of athletic director for Southern University on a full-time, permanent basis,” said Dr. Ray L.

His appointment will ensure a seamless transition to continue moving the department in a positive direction.” –Read More
