Auburn AD Jay Jacobs has announced his plans to resign in June, but the school likely won’t wait that long to name his successor.
On Thursday, Auburn president Steven Leath said the school would act quickly to replace Jacobs.
According to 247Sports, Leath made his comments to the Board of Trustees on Friday morning, adding that a search committee would be named next week:
“We’re going to move very quickly on replacing AD Jacobs,” Auburn University president Steven Leath said during the Board of Trustees meeting Friday morning. “We are in the process of formulating a search committee and strategizing plans to hire an athletic director” by forming a search committee, which will be announced next week.
“As soon as we can get it organized, it will be announced.”
Former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville has thrown his name into the ring for the job, but it remains to be seen if he gets the position.
However, Auburn fans likely won’t have to wait long to find out who the new AD will be, as Leath has made it clear he wants to make a move soon.
