SUU Athletic Director Resigns

Utah State is not the only university in the beehive state in a search for a new athletic director.  Thursday, Southern Utah University director of athletics, Ken Beazer, announced his resignation.

After ten milestone years at the helm, Ken Beazer is moving on.  Beazer met with coaches and staff in a morning meeting.  A press release from the university made it official Thursday afternoon.

“I just think it’s in the best interest of everybody involved to make a change. I’ve been here a long time, I think this department and university would benefit greatly from a new pair of eyes on the situation,” Beazer said. “I’m extremely happy and proud of what we have been able to accomplish over my tenure here. I think it’s time for somebody else to look at it and see if we can get it to the next level.”

Beazer said the open position at Utah State was not a factor in the resignation.  Ken Beazer came to southern Utah from a position with Utah State athletics.
