Ole Miss’ search to find the next person to lead the athletics department is finally over. After searching for Pete Boone’s replacement since he announced his decision to step aside as AD last November, Ole Miss officially hired Western Kentucky Athletics Director Ross Bjork to the same position today. He is expected to be introduced at a press conference Thursday.
According to a release from Ole Miss, Bjork will take over in mid-April. A committee led by former Ole Miss quarterback Archie Manning and FedEx executive Mike Glenn helped recommend Bjork to Chancellor Dan Jones. (March 21, 2012, Page 6)
