Search for new SIU Athletics Director continues

It will be a bit longer before SIU Carbondale names a new Athletic Director.

The search for a new A-D was scheduled to be completed this month, but leaders say the process is still going on.

SIU Foundation Director Matt Kupec has been leading athletics on an interim appointment, and a spokesperson for the university says he'll stay on until the search is complete.

The university fired Liz Jarnigan from the A-D post earlier this fall. Leaders at the time said they hoped to have a new director in place by December - but now they say the process is taking a bit longer than they expected.

Jennifer Fuller joined Capitol News Illinois in July 2023 as the organization’s broadcast director. She will oversee the launch and operations of CNI’s new broadcast division.
