A&M-Commerce names four finalists in search for new athletic director


COMMERCE — The four finalists were selected from more than 50 applicants nationwide and were chosen by a 13-member search committee made up of A&M-Commerce faculty, staff, students and community representatives. During each on-campus interview, the candidates will meet with the search committee and the different constituent groups associated with the Athletic Department on the A&M-Commerce campus.

An open forum for each of the candidates will be held during their on-campus interview, taking place from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. each day at the Rayburn Student Center. A live stream of each of the open forums will be available at and questions for the Athletic Director candidates can be e-mailed to, with questions being asked as time permits.

The goal is to provide a recommendation to Texas A&M University-Commerce President Dr. Dan Jones before the Christmas holiday with the new Athletic Director beginning their responsibilities in the winter of 2013.
