NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY

Floros elected to serve as chair of WAC executive board

Posted

New Mexico State University President John Floros has been elected to serve as chairman of the Executive Committee for the Western Athletic Conference.

The vote came during the conference’s annual June meeting.
 
“NMSU’s participation in the Western Athletic Conference creates tremendous opportunities for our student-athletes to compete at a high level while they pursue their academic goals,” Floros said. “I’m looking forward to shaping some key decisions during the coming year that will position the WAC for continued growth and success.”
 
Utah Valley University President Astrid S. Tuminez was elected vice chair of the board, and the third member of the Executive Committee is Tarleton State University President James Hurley, who will take the spot of retiring Seattle University President Stephen Sundborg as past chair.
 
NMSU joined the WAC in 2005. The NMSU football team competes as an independent member of the Football Bowl Subdivision.
 
The current board welcomed its four newest WAC members -- Abilene Christian University, Lamar University, Sam Houston State University and Stephen F. Austin State University, as well as Southern Utah University, which will join on July 1, 2022.
 
The board approved scheduling formats for the 2021-22 seasons and a championship site rotation. For more information about WAC Executive Committee activities, visit
