Folks, we have a new Athletic Director.
Baylor Family, please welcome our new Vice President and Director of Athletics Mack Rhoades to Central Texas. #SicEm pic.twitter.com/pm9QZv4BVB— Baylor Athletics (@BaylorAthletics) July 13, 2016
"The past year has taught me a great deal about who I am as a person and as a leader. I am very grateful to the people I’ve worked with and come to know throughout the state of Missouri. The experience has helped galvanized a commitment to my core values and to the values I want to infuse into an athletics program," said Rhoades. "I look forward to the opportunity to join Baylor University at this important time in its history. I am excited to support and develop programs of the highest caliber, in facilities that are second to none, alongside coaches who are among the best in the industry, all grounded in a Christian tradition and committed to academic excellence."
Now that Baylor Athletics has a new leader, the true search for our next Head Football Coach will likely begin in earnest. I'm excited to see where this era leads.
Welcome to Baylor, Mr. Rhoades!
