Washington Huskies athletic director Scott Woodward will leave UW to become the new athletic director at Texas A&M, according to a report by Chip Brown of Horns Digest.
UW had no comment on the report.
Woodward’s name was floated yesterday by USA Today columnist Dan Wolken as a possible replacement for Aggies athletic director Eric Hyman, whose departure was announced on Tuesday.
UW also lost its former president, Michael K. Young, to Texas A&M in February, so there is obviously some familiarity with Woodward at that level.
Woodward, 52, was named UW’s athletic director in September 2008 after serving as the school’s vice president of external relations from 2004-2008. He took over the AD position on an interim basis while the UW searched for a replacement for Todd Turner, who resigned in December 2007, then was appointed the full-time athletic director nine months later.
