It’s been more than a month since Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward departed to take the same job at his alma mater LSU, and according to The Dallas Morning News’ Ben Baby, the Aggies have found their replacement without leaving the SEC West. The Aggies are reportedly set to name Ole Miss’s Ross Bjork their new athletic director.

The Aggies had an well-publicized courtship with Oregon AD Rob Mullens earlier this month before Mullens withdrew his name from consideration, which many speculated came down to a dispute over salary.

In Bjork, A&M get’s an AD with a wealth of experience in the SEC West (he’s been at Ole Miss since 2012), but also someone who was at the helm with the Ole Miss football program was found guilty of significant recruiting violations by the NCAA.

On the bright side, Bjork’s baseball program scored a run today.
