Kansas University’s Terry Mohajir, a senior associate athletic director for external relations, has emerged as a finalist for the vacant athletic director job at Arkansas State and may be the favorite.
Officials at Arkansas State confirmed to the Journal-World late Tuesday that a news conference to introduce the school’s new AD had been scheduled for 10:30 this morning, and sources close to the Arkansas State program said Mohajir fit the profile of what the school was looking for in its next leader of the athletic department.
Mohajir graduated from Arkansas State with a major in sports management and a minor in marketing in 1993 and was a starter on ASU’s football team.
He joined Kansas Athletics in May of 2011 after a stint at Florida Atlantic as a senior associate athletics director. While at FAU, he oversaw development, marketing, ticket sales, corporate sales and the media relations department.
His duties at Kansas include assisting in the operations for the Williams Educational Fund and directing the efforts of the Marketing and Game-Day Experience staffs. This is his second stint with the Jayhawks, as he previously served as an assistant offensive line and game-day special teams coach with the KU football program from 1993-96.
