Georgia Tech graduate and booster Stephen Zelnak will chair a seven-person search committee that will recommend candidates to school president G.P. “Bud” Peterson for the athletic director position. Also on the committee is former football player Roddy Jones.
Zelnak, a 1969 graduate, is also a member of the Georgia Tech Foundation Board of Trustees. The Tech basketball practice facility and the football team meeting room are named in his honor.
Other committee members are:
Sue Ann Allen, associate dean for Faculty Development in the College of Engineering and the school’s NCAA faculty athletics representative
Lynn Durham, Georgia Tech assistant vice president, office of the president (ex-officio)
Patrick “Pat” McKenna, vice president for Legal Affairs and Risk Management (ex-officio)
Steven Swant, Georgia Tech executive vice president for Administration and Finance
Al Trujillo, past chair of the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, member of the Georgia Tech Foundation Board of Trustees and the College of Engineering Advisory Board.
The school has set up a website for the Tech community to solicit input on the search process, here. Peterson will name a search firm to serve as a consultant in coming weeks.
