Who Is Replacing Sandy Barbour as Penn State’s Athletic Director

Penn State will employ a new president and new athletic director this summer to steer the future of its sports programs. Football coach James Franklin called the search for a new athletic director an important moment for the university.

So expect Franklin to be involved, as he was with the presidential search process.

“I’m excited right now in how those things are going,” Franklin said. “But obviously, this athletic director hire is going to be critical for the university as a whole, for the athletic department, and then specifically to the football program. It’s a very, very important hire and very important that we build strong relationships andthat I understand so I can do a great job of building the football program in the vision that they expect it to be run. “
