AP Source: Rutgers makes Louisville's Hermann AD

  •  

A person familiar with the decision says Rutgers has hired Julie Hermann from the University of Louisville to be its new athletic director.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school was still working on an official announcement.

The school did announce that it would hold a news conference at 3 p.m. EDT to name a new athletic director.

The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., first reported the hire.

Hermmann has been the Cardinals' senior associate athletic director and senior woman administrator. She becomes the third female athletic director at a school among the 124 playing at college football's top tier.

Rutgers has been looking for a new AD since Tim Pernetti resigned on April 5, part of the fallout from the Mike Rice scandal.

Rice, the former men's basketball coach, was fired when a video of him pushing, kicking and throwing balls at players became public.
