Morgantown, West Virginia – It only took former WVU Athletic Director Shane Lyons one week to find a new job.

After being with the Mountaineers since 2015, Lyons was fired due in part to his to his role in the hefty contract extension for Neal Brown. Now that Brown has failed to meet expectations, he will end up costing the university nearly $20 million to fire.
WVU is operating with Rob Aslop as the interim athletic director. They will be conducting a national search. The next athletic director is expected to be hired in the coming weeks.
