Ohio State announced the hiring of Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork on Tuesday afternoon.

Bjork has been Texas A&M's athletic director since 2019 and was Ole Miss' AD from 2012-2019. He will replace longtime Buckeyes athletic director Gene Smith. Per

“Few athletics directors have established such an impressive and strong record of success in athletics, in the classroom and throughout the community,” Ohio State president Ted Carter said in a news release. “The bar is incredibly high at Ohio State, and we have found in Ross a highly intelligent and effective leader – not to mention a fierce competitor.”

Bjork will be formally introduced as Ohio State’s athletic director during a press conference Wednesday at noon.

“I have been extraordinarily fortunate to work with so many outstanding student-athletes, coaches, staff and university leaders throughout my career, and Ohio State represents the culmination of these efforts,” Bjork said in Ohio State’s release. “To be a part of Buckeye Nation, along with its storied traditions and long history of achievement, is a tremendous honor and a welcome challenge. I can’t wait to get started.”
