Terry Mohajir was introduced as the new athletic director at Arkansas State on Wednesday morning. Mohajir served as the senior associate athletic director for external relations at Kansas for just over a year before taking the head job at Arkansas State. He played football at ASU, and graduated in 1993. Mohajir also served as an assistant offensive line and special teams coach from 1993-1996. On having the opportunity to lead his alma mater, Mohajir said:

"I’m right back where I started my athletics career," said an emotional Mohajir at his introduction. "I’m so excited to be back to serve this emerging university."

KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger spoke highly of Mohajir after his departure from Lawrence, stating:

"I’m excited for Terry and Arkansas State," Zenger said. "It’s a rare privilege to get to serve your alma mater as its director of athletics. Terry’s energy and marketing savvy will bode well for both of them."

Before coming to Kansas, Mohajir served as senior associate athletic director at Florida Atlantic University.
