Copy-Washington's Scott Woodward named AD at Texas A&M

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Scott Woodward has been named Texas A&M's new athletic director after serving in that same position at Washington since 2008.

Texas A&M President Michael Young announced the hiring Friday, three days after Eric Hyman announced he was stepping down from the position.

Woodward will be formally introduced in College Station next week.

Young took over as Texas A&M president in May. He was Washington's president before that, with Woodward as AD.

Hyman joined Texas A&M in 2012, helping the Aggies make the transition from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference.

Before Washington, Woodward from 2000-04 was director of external affairs at LSU, his alma mater. He worked then with LSU President Mark Emmert, who has since become NCAA president.
