Kent State has finalized the 17 people that will make up the search committee to help find the next athletic director at Kent State.
Dave Carducci at the Record Courier has a full story here.
The members are expected to include...
I hope the next athletic director at Kent State understands the comprehensive approach to athletics that Laing Kennedy and his staff have taken. Kent State's programs have been successful due to the depth and the well rounded culture that is created among Kent State's athletic department. That is why KSU has held six Jacoby Trophies (1989, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2004 and 2005) and four Reese titles (2000, 2002, 2006 and 2009). I also hope the new AD has the ability to market the athletic programs to generate more fan interest to the community while also producing a consistent football program that is competing year in and year out for MAC championships. The student in 'student-athlete' must also continue to be of great importance.

Lainhart was one of 11 defensive players named to the main team, while Goode was a part of the 10-member All-Freshman offensive squad.
