Patrick Chun Chosen as Washington State Athletic Director
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State has chosen Patrick Chun as its new athletic director.
Chun has spent the past five years leading the sports programs at Florida Atlantic University.
Chun replaces Bill Moos, who left recently to become athletic director at Nebraska. Chun will be introduced as a press conference in Pullman on Tuesday.
Washington State says the 43-year-old Chun is the first Asian-American athletic director to lead a Power 5 school. The Cougars compete in the Pac-12 Conference.
Chun has shown that he is a good fundraiser, and the Cougars are trying to eliminate a budget deficit of more than $8 million in athletics.
