Texas A&M has reportedly found its new athletic director, which can put to rest the possibility of Georgia Tech athletic director Dan Radakovich’s candidacy for the position.
However, Radakovich may find himself in a game of speculation musical chairs. The person that the San Antonio Express-News reported Thursday will take the job is South Carolina athletic director Eric Hyman. Radakovich worked at South Carolina from 1994-2000 as an associate athletic director.
Early Friday morning, in fact, the Post and Courier of Charleston listed Radakovich as a possibility to replace Hyman. (link behind pay wall)
Radakovich’s name has previously been connected, legitimately or otherwise, with openings at Miami, Tennessee and, this week, Texas A&M. Wednesday, Radakovich denied a report that he was a top candidate for the A&M position.
Hyman’s experience recommends him for the position as Texas A&M joins the SEC on Sunday. Hyman has worked in both the SEC and in Texas, having been athletic director at TCU from 1997 to 2005. The deal could be completed as early as Friday.
