Jack Graham Hired As New Colorado State Athletic Director

Colorado State will announce Jack Graham as the newest athletic director for the school during Thursday afternoon's press conference. This ends the tenure of current athletic directory Paul Kowalczyk, who had signed a five-year extension in early 2010.

Graham was the Rams' quarterback in the mid-1970s and has since become one of the biggest boosters of the school. He briefly played in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins before moving into the insurance industry.

He will now have the tough task of turning the athletic programs into winners, especially the basketball and football teams. He will certainly need to make a decision on football head coach Steve Fairchild soon enough.
