Currie named Bobby Dodd Athletic Director of the Year

By Communications and Marketing

Following a year that saw K-State reach unprecedented athletic, academic, administrative and fundraising success, John Currie was presented the 2013 Bobby Dodd Athletic Director of the Year Award at the annual Division 1A  athletics director meetings in Dallas.

The honor, which coincides with head coach Bill Snyder being named the 2012 Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year, comes on the heels of Currie being named a 2013 FBS UnderArmour AD of the Year this past summer.

“We are very pleased to be able to recognize John Currie as the winner of the 2013 award,” said Jim Terry, chairman of the Dodd Foundation. “John’s vision and drive have made it possible for all sports at Kansas State to reach new heights of success and excellence. Having met and worked with John when Coach Bill Snyder was selected as the 2012 Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year gave us the opportunity to see the excellent facilities and processes which John has put in place at this impressive university. We feel strongly that when a head football coach is recognized as a national coach of the year, that school’s director of athletics is responsible for putting into place the many processes necessary for that coach to have succeeded. John Currie has definitely done this at Kansas State University.”
