Special Assistant to the President R.C. Slocum has been named interim athletic director by Texas A&M President Michael K. Young. Young said that it’s important to have a person who is intimately familiar with the inner workings of college athletics and Texas A&M University leading the department while a national search is conducted. The search begins immediately. Slocum said he was honored when President Young asked him to take the interim position overseeing a department that has 260 or so employees. More than 650 student-athletes compete at the NCAA Division 1-A level in 20 varsity sports. Slocum coached the A&M football program for 14 seasons from 1989-2002, never having a losing season and becoming the winningest coach in the university’s history. No deadline has been set for the hiring of the new athletic director. –today.tamu.edu. Read More.
