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.
