TROY, Ala. (AP) — Troy has promoted Brent Jones to athletic director following his two-year stint as deputy director of athletics for external operations.
Jones, whose promotion was announced Wednesday, had overseen areas including marketing, communications, advertising and ticket sales. He served as the administrator for the baseball program and was in charge of football scheduling.
He replaces Jeremy McClain, who left after more than three years to take over the Southern Miss athletic program.
