Nevada on Tuesday announced that it had hired LSU deputy athletic director Stephanie Rempe for its vacant AD post.

Rempe was at LSU for just under 3 years, joining the university from Texas A&M, where she served in the same role since 2016. Prior to that, she was the senior associate athletic director at Washington.

“She brings an incredible breadth of experience to the job. More than that, she is a deeply strategic thinker who brings a great deal of heart to everything that she does,” University of Nevada president Brian Sandoval said in a statement. “I am incredibly excited to welcome Stephanie and her family to the Wolf Pack Family.”

“More than 25 years ago I set out on my journey to become an athletics director. Today it has become a reality,” Rempe said. “The people, opportunities, tradition, fans, student-athletes, coaches, staff, leadership, passion and shared values are everything that I sought.”

LSU AD Scott Woodward, who initially hired Rempe at Washington in 2008 and later in College Station and Baton Rouge, offered his own statement following news of Rempe’s departure.

“From maximizing the talents of our coaches, staff, and student-athletes on a daily basis, to her leadership efforts through times of rapid change affecting the entirety of intercollegiate athletics, Stephanie has elevated our entire institution through her work in LSU Athletics,” he said.
