Georgia State Football Coach Bill Curry Named Interim Athletics Director

Georgia State President Mark P. Becker today (Jan. 7) named head football coach Bill Curry interim athletics director while a national search begins for a leader to head the university’s collegiate sports program.

“I’m pleased that Coach Curry is willing to serve in this crucial role at a very important time. I have every confidence that he will provide the essential leadership right now to our student-athletes, staff and athletic programs,” Becker said. “His experience in college athletics and his dedication to Georgia State makes him the best person to take the helm of our program.”

Parker Executive Search in Atlanta will conduct a national search for a permanent athletics director, and a university search committee will be named to assist in that effort.

Becker said the plan is to have a new athletics director in place by spring.
