(WDAZ-TV) - Sean Johnson, UND's senior associate athletic director for external operations, has been named director of athletics at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, effective July 23.
Johnson was ASU's sports information director from 1994 to 1996.
According to an ASU release, Johnson will oversee ASU's NCAA Division II athletic programs in five men's and eight women's sports. He succeeds Kathleen Brasfield, who retired at the end of May.
"Angelo State is a great place, it's a great program," said Johnson in a WDAZ interview. "It's my wife's hometown. They have a great tradition and history of winning. They have great coaches and administrators there. And it's just a chance to be in charge of a program."
Johnson credited UND athletic director Brian Faison with mentoring him toward his career goal of being an athletic director.
In four years at UND, Johnson's responsibilities included corporate sales, ticket sales, marketing, public relations, broadcasting, courtesy car program, trade agreements and football scheduling/game management.
He served as lead administrator for baseball and secondary administrator for football, men's basketball and men's ice hockey, one of the nation's premier programs.
