Sterk Leaving WSU for to be A.D. at San Diego State

SPOKANE, Wash. - Jim Sterk, who has served as Washington State University's athletic director since 2000, will be named to the same position at San Diego State University, sources close to the situation confirmed Friday.

Sterk, reached by telephone, would not comment on the appointment, first reported on-line by the San Diego Union-Tribune, other than to say he is a candidate.

"I can just confirm that I'm a candidate and that there will be announcement on Monday," Sterk said.

According to the Tribune report, Sterk was not one of three finalists selected by a 10-member search committee. His name was kept secret, the Tribune reported, because Sterk did not want his name revealed unless he was assured the position.

A WSU source said Friday the report was correct, adding that Sterk had originally turned down the school. But when SDSU offered the job this past week, Sterk accepted.

SDSU president Stephen Weber sent out an e-mail to staff members Friday saying the search was over and the athletic director would be named Monday.
