Southern University has narrowed its search for a new Athletic Director to three candidates. The list includes John Robinson, Paula Jackson and former SU athletic director Floyd Kerr.
Chancellor James L. Llorens said he is pleased with the list of finalists that were selected by an athletic director search committee. Llorens said he plans to interview each of the candidates but did not set a date for the interviews nor when he would make a selection. His choice will have to go to the SU Board of Supervisors for a vote.
Llorens did say, however, that he hopes to make a decision before the end of the year. Head women’s basketball coach Sandy Pugh has been the interim athletic director since May.
Robinson is the executive director of student academic enhancement services at Texas Southern University in Houston.
