BATON ROUGE -- LSU senior associate athletic director Dan Radakovich has been named the new athletic director at Georgia Tech, it was announced Wednesday afternoon.
Radakovich, 47, joined LSU in May of 2001 as senior associate athletic director, serving as athletic director Skip Bertman’s chief assistant. In addition to other responsibilities, he supervised the men’s basketball and baseball programs and was responsible for football scheduling.
"Dan has done great things for LSU Athletics and this is an opportunity that he deserves," Bertman said. "He has been instrumental in the tremendous growth we have experienced in the last five years and the level of success we have achieved throughout our program. I thank him for his service to our student-athletes, our coaches and our fans, and I wish him and his family all the best in his new position."
"Dan's a solid professional and widely respected in the collegiate athletics community," said LSU Chancellor Sean O'Keefe. "He has been a great asset to LSU and he has helped us reach a high level of excellence in athletics. Dan’s become a great personal friend, so I am all the more disappointed to lose a member of the LSU family. We wish him well."
Bertman said he would conduct an evaluation of the existing athletic department organization before moving forward with any new staff hirings, assignments or changes within the department.
