Northern Illinois has hired Wisconsin deputy athletic director Sean Frazier to be its new athletic director.

The move was announced Tuesday.

Frazier replaces Jeff Compher, who left to take the athletic director's job at East Carolina.

Frazier, who has been at Wisconsin since 2007, was also a finalist to become Rutgers athletic director before the school hired Julie Hermann.
