Minnesota to introduce Teague as new AD
By Adam Rittenberg
As expected, Minnesota has hired Norwood Teague as its next athletic director and will introduce him at a news conference scheduled for 3:45 p.m. ET.
Teague, the only finalist for Minnesota's AD vacancy, has led VCU's athletic department since 2006. Under his leadership, VCU's annual fund has increased by 119 percent. He'll succeed Joel Maturi, who will retire from Minnesota on June 30 after 10 years as the school's athletic director.
The Big Ten Network and BTN2Go will broadcast the news conference live. We'll have a wrap-up later today on what Norwood says, particularly in relation to football. The news conference, by the way, will take place in Minnesota's mammoth home locker room at TCF Bank Stadium. Nice touch.
