FARGO, N.D. (AP/CBS4) – The committee searching for North Dakota State University’s next athletic director has chosen seven candidates for consideration, including Colorado State senior associate athletic director David Crum.
The committee expects to narrow the pool before inviting candidates for on-campus interviews.
Gene Taylor announced in June that he was leaving NDSU to take the No. 2 position in athletics at Iowa, with hopes of someday landing the top job at a Bowl Championship Subdivision school. NDSU competes in the lower-tier Football Championship Subdivision.
Along with Crum, the current pool of candidates to replace Taylor are: NDSU senior associate athletic director Troy Goergen, former Northern Iowa athletic director Rick Hartzell, Stony Brook senior associate athletic director Matthew Larsen, Idaho associate athletic director Tim Mooney, Idaho State athletic director Jeff Tingey and St. Bonaventure athletic director Stephen Watson.
