The Delta State University Athletic Director Search Committee announced today its intent to bring two candidates to campus next week for preliminary on-site interviews.
John G. Garvilla, current athletic director and head men’s soccer coach at Belhaven College in Jackson; and Jeremy McClain, director of development with the Delta State University Foundation in Cleveland, will interview with the search committee, the Delta State Cabinet and members of the Delta State athletic department on Wednesday, April 11.
Greg Redlin, Delta State’s Vice President of Finance and staffing member of the search committee offered, “These interviews should not be confused with the at-large interviews which will involve additional university and community audiences, but rather are just the committee’s way of gathering more information on the candidates.
“It is still our intent to interview the chosen candidates with community and university audiences. We will know more after Wednesday’s interviews,” he concluded.
The Delta State athletic director position was left vacant in March by the departure of Dr. Brad Teague. In the interim, Ronnie Mayers, assistant athletic director for special projects and director of swimming operations, is filling the post.
