UW-Stout names new athletic director

Joe Harlan has been named to replace Steve Terry, who resigned last week in the wake of drug charges against five football players.

Terry will stay on the job until June 15 and will then return to a teaching job in physical education.

The 38-year-old Harlan has been at Stout since 2000 and was the interim athletic director at Clark College in Washington State in 1998-99.

Chancellor Charles Sorenson says Harlan is respected tremendously in the athletic department and he has the leadership ability the school needs right now.

In a statement, Harlan pointed out that Stout athletics have done great things in the past and he'll strive to make all Blue Devil programs thrive in the future.
