Missouri confirms Mack Rhoades as new Athletics director

The University of Missouri confirmed this morning via Twitter and its athletics website that UH Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics Mack Rhoades will be moving to Missouri.

Multiple sources reported Sunday evening that the announcement of the move would be made Monday; however, nothing has been confirmed from the University.

Rhoades received degrees from both the University of Arizona and Indiana University Bloomington before becoming a marketing assistant at Yale in 1996. Following his time at Yale, Rhoades served as a member of the advancement department at Marquette, senior associate and assistant athletic director at the University of Texas El Paso for eight years and the athletics director at Akron for three years before coming to Houston in 2009.

Since then, Rhoades has been a major influence over multiple improvements to athletics with TDECU Stadium, the renovation of Hofheinz Pavilion and the hiring of championship coaches Kelvin Sampson and Tom Herman.
