    ATLANTA - Todd Stansbury has been named Georgia Tech's new athletics director.

    The school hosted a news conference to officially introduce Stansbury.

    Stansbury has served as Oregon State’s athletic director since June 2015 following a nine-year stint as the university’s executive associate athletic director from 2003-2012. During his time at Oregon State, Stansbury was part of a senior management team that raised $150 million for a football stadium expansion, in addition to fundraising for the construction of a sports performing center. He also was part of a team that established several career development initiatives for student-athletes. 

    “Todd Stansbury is committed to athletes’ success both on and off the field,” Peterson said. “His global perspective and leadership experience in athletics and development, combined with a lifelong passion for Georgia Tech, make him the ideal candidate. I believe this is one of those rare golden moments in life where opportunity meets ambition. We welcome him home.” 

    The AJC was first to report the hiring of Stansbury.
