(AP/KLAS) — Missouri is hiring UNLV athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois to be its next AD.

The announcement was confirmed on Mizzou’s website on Sunday.

Reed-Francois, who has been at UNLV since 2017, will replace Jim Sterk, who stepped down two weeks ago.

She will become the second woman to be hired as an athletic director in the Southeastern Conference and the first at one of the league’s 13 public schools.

Candice Storey Lee was named AD at Vanderbilt, the SEC’s lone private school, last year.
