Wren Baker doesn’t recall the name of the professor he credits for changing the course of his life. He can barely remember his face. The advice that teacher gave a fellow student as Baker listened in more than 20 years ago is another matter entirely. That conversation changed Baker’s life and set him on course for a career in athletics that has led him to the University of North Texas. On Aug. 22, Baker will complete a busy first year as UNT’s athletic director that has seen him revamp the school’s staff, make plans to build two multimillion-dollar facilities and hire a new men’s basketball coach. Those are challenges Baker, 38, never anticipated facing before sitting down with a professor he’d never met at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Baker was a member of the school’s honors program and teamed up with the professor to interview a candidate for the program. –¬†Brett Vito,¬†dentonrc.comRead More
