New Mexico State University Announces Reorganization of Athletics Department

New Mexico State University (NMSU) announced the reorganization of the NMSU Athletics Department. Included in the reorganization is naming Las Cruces businessman David McCollum to the newly created position of deputy athletics director. In the new position, McCollum will oversee all business affairs for the Athletics Department. McCollum was previously the owner and chief executive officer of FIG Publications, which owned the Las Cruces Bulletin, the Rio Rancho Observer and the Kirtland Air Force Base Nucleus. Each of these newspapers was struggling financially when they were acquired by FIG, but were quickly turned around. McCollum has also worked as group publisher for the Community Newspapers Holding Company in Birmingham, Ala., as president and publisher of the Las Cruces Publishing Company, and as a senior leader in several other companies in the areas of media, marketing and advertising. Under the new organization plan, McCollum will oversee the department's marketing, financial and Title IX operations. He will also coordinate supervision of sports information. NMSU Athletics Director McKinley Boston will continue to oversee each of the NMSU team coaches. The presidents of NMSU's community colleges, which include NMSU Alamogordo, NMSU Carlsbad, NMSU Grants and NMSU's Dona Ana Community College, will now report to NMSU Executive Vice President and Provost Dan Howard. Those positions previously reported directly to the NMSU president. Similarly, the university's vice president for research and vice president for economic development will also report to the executive vice president and provost. NMSU's Human Resources Services and NMSU's Office of Institutional Equity will report to Associate Vice President and Deputy Provost Greg Fant. Previously, Human Resource Services reported to the Senior Vice President for Administration and Finance. The majority of these changes came as recommendations from the transition teams set up shortly after Garrey Carruthers becoming president in an effort to find improvements to various university organizations.
