Ole Miss has hired Western Kentucky's Ross Bjork as their new athletic director. The 39-year-old Bjork has been the athletic director at Western Kentucky since March 2010 and has also worked in the athletic departments at UCLA, Miami and Missouri. Ole Miss chancellor Dr. Dan Jones said in a statement...

"I've spent a lot of time with him," "Integrity and character are important to me, and I'm very comfortable with his strengths on those attributes. I'm also very pleased with the professional track he's taken in college athletics. He has trained for this job through his education and a steady, upward track in athletic administration, and he's demonstrated a commitment to Ole Miss and to winning on and off the field."
There will be an official press conference on Thursday.
