Grambling reinstates athletic director search

GRAMBLING, Louisiana -- Grambling's search for a new athletic director is back on.

Less than a week after suspending the search due to budgets issues at the school, Grambling president Willie Larkin has decided to resume the search for the university's first permanent athletic director since 2014.

In a letter obtained by The News-Star dated Thursday, Feb. 18, Larkin wrote to the Grambling family that he has heard the "resounding sentiments and enthusiasm" regarding the search.

"I stand in agreement with you that we are much better served if we indeed continue the search for a permanent director of athletics," Larkin wrote.

Larkin added Grambling will move forward with "high expectations of hiring the best candidate to lead and advance our athletic program."

The news comes after Larkin announced in a letter last weekend that Grambling would suspend its search due to the "uncertainty around the University’s budget."
