Morgantown, West Virginia – As reported earlier, Shane Lyons is now out as the director of athletics at West Virginia University. According to ESPN, Rob Alsop, the current Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, will be named the interim AD.

ESPN had the following to say about Alsop: “Alsop comes from a political background. He’s a West Virginia graduate, as an undergraduate and for law school. He has worked in various roles for Earl Ray Tomblin and Joe Manchin whey they served as governor of West Virginia.”

Although Alsop will serve as the interim AD, it’s expected that West Virginia will move quickly to replace Lyons.
