Florida State's new Athletics Director is Stan Wilcox, formerly of Duke and Notre Dame. The press conference introducing him starts at 5:15. Tomahawk Nation writers are in attendance and will be bringing live updates in the comments section.
"I am excited about the future of Florida State's athletics program under the direction of Stan. His exceptional portfolio of strategic planning and fundraising experience and his reputation as a motivator, effective communicator and facilitator, as well as a commitment to the education of our student athletes made Stan a clear choice," said Pres. Barron.
"I am thrilled and very thankful to Pres. Barron for affording me this great honor. I have followed Florida State athletics from afar and through the ACC Conference; and have always been a big fan of FSU's student athletes on the field and in the classroom," said Wilcox. "I look forward to continuing in the great tradition of previous Florida State athletic directors as well as addressing the challenges and opportunities that this outstanding athletics program will hold. Go 'Noles!"
