COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The University of Missouri has its third athletic director in as many weeks.
Interim Chancellor Hank Foley announced Wednesday that Sarah Reesman has been named the Columbia school’s interim athletic director. Reesman will assume that new role on Friday, a day after returning from two weeks abroad.
Foley says Reesman lately has overseen the department’s operational functions that include human resources, academic support, student-athlete development, diversity and inclusion activities, student conduct and employee contracts.
Mack Rhoades resigned on July 13 as athletic director to oversee Baylor’s sports department. Wren Baker was chosen to replace him at Missouri on an acting basis but resigned last week to become the athletic director at North Texas.
Foley says the search continues for a permanent successor to Rhoades.
