Missouri Athletic Director Desireé Reed-Francois is leaving Columbia to take the athletic director position at Arizona. Per ESPN:

Reed-Francois has agreed to a five-year deal. The hiring, announced Monday, gives Arizona's athletic department, which is replete with financial struggles, a veteran leader who has spent nearly three years leading Missouri.

The jump from the SEC to Arizona, which is entering the Big 12 in the 2024-25 academic year, is an unexpected one within the college sport industry. Sources told ESPN that Reed-Francois' ties to Arizona, which include graduating from law school there in 1997, helped lead to the decision.

The move also comes just weeks after Missouri's board of curators voted to create the Mizzou Intercollegiate Athletics Special Committee, a four-member panel to monitor Missouri sports.
