ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina State has hired Paul Bryant of Stillman College as the Bulldogs' new athletic director.
Bryant confirmed in an email to The Associated Press on Thursday that he has accepted the job. Bryant takes over for Charlene Johnson, who left in April to take a fundraising position in athletics after 10 years as the school's first female AD. Octavio Miro had been heading up the athletic department the past four months.
Bryant spent the past year in charge of Stillman athletics. Before that, he was athletic director at Eureka College in Illinois for five years. Bryant was also basketball coach and associate director for athletics at Urbana University.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
