Hocutt is Gone
(2008-02-08)
(WOUB) - Kirby Hocutt has been hired as the
University of Miami's athletic director. He'd been the AD at Ohio University since 2005.

The former Kansas State linebacker also spent six years in Oklahoma's athletic department, where he helped oversee a major fundraising campaign.

Hocutt replaces Paul Dee, who announced plans to resign in May after serving as the Hurricanes' AD since 1993 and is expected to join the school's faculty on June 1st.

Dee's tenure at the school was highlighted by the Hurricanes' 2001 national football championship, two national titles in baseball and the construction of Miami's 48 million dollar campus basketball arena.
