Vanderbilt University has an athletic director for the first time in nine years after David Williams was named to the job, which he will hold in conjunction with several other roles. Jerome Boettcher has the story over at the CP.
Last fall, USA Today reported that Williams was the highest paid athletic director in the country, making $2.56 million. That included his other responsibilities, such as teaching classes at the law school, which he will continue to do. But he will step down as general counsel and university secretary. A national search for those vacancies will begin shortly.
