Spetman Named New FSU Athletic Director

February 4th, 2008 by flanews

The Seminoles have a new top dog in the sports department. Former Utah State Athletic Director Randy Spetman is now the Florida State University Athletic Director. The announcement was made on campus Monday morning. The appointment comes just as FSU is ready to send the NCAA a report detailing what happened when 23 athletes were caught cheating in an online music course. University President T.K. Wetherell said the new AD will put the incident to rest.

“The NCAA report is basically written. We’re doing some finalization,
some word-smiting of that. It’ll be shipped off to the NCAA in the next
few weeks. Obviously we’ll hand it to him, but clearly he’s inheriting
that and he has experience with the NCAA and worked through it and that
process will do what it does,” said Wetherell.

“It was a bump in the road but we’ve all seen different institutions have that from time to time, but I don’t think it’s jeopardized anything that this university represents. And we just have to get going and win national championships and people will forget about it,” said Spetman.

The cheating incident was brought to the universities attention by student athletes. In published remarks, President Wetherell indicated the department tried to downplay the problem. It may be one of the reasons there is a new Athletic Director tonight.
