Interim director named during Athletics search

Larry Lyons ’86 has been named the interim director of Athletics at Illinois State University following the resignation of Sheahon Zenger, who accepted a similar position at Kansas.

Lyons, who is in his 24th year at Illinois State, had been serving as executive associate director in Athletics. In addition to business operations, his duties have included facility operations and the Weibring Golf Club, while supervising athletic training, athletic equipment, and strength and conditioning. He also provides administrative leadership for men’s and women’s golf and baseball, while working with men’s basketball and football.

Lyons will continue to oversee the business operations while serving as the interim director, during which time a national search will be conducted.
