Northern Arizona Hires an Athletic Director

It has felt over the past few months that there has been almost no news or progress in Northern Arizona's search for a head coach. One of the big reasons for this was the fact that they didn't have an athletic director.

That is no longer, as pointed out to me by reader/commentor MTJack. Northern Arizona has hired UTEP administrator Lisa Campos to be their athletic director.

Lisa Campos, the senior associate athletic director at the University of Texas at El Paso, has been selected as vice president for Intercollegiate Athletics by Northern Arizona University.

NAU announced the hiring today, pending approval by the Arizona Board of Regents.

“Lisa exemplifies NAU’s dual commitment to excellence in athletics and academics,” said NAU President John Haeger. “Elevating this position from athletic director to vice president is a first for NAU. As a vice president, she will literally be at the table with our academic and administrative vice presidents, all working to advance NAU’s performance goals on and off the field.”
Hopefully now we will start to see a little more news relating to Northern Arizona's head coaching search, since that will surely be one of the first items on her agenda.
