University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler announced Norwood Teague, currently the director of athletics at Virginia Commonwealth University, as the lone finalist for the athletic director position, the Pioneer Press reports.
The position was held for the past 10 years by Joel Maturi, who announced in February that he would be retiring.
Teague, 46, has more than 20 years of experience in intercollegiate athletics and has held his current position at VCU since July 2006, the Pioneer Press reports.
According to the Pioneer Press, Teague was one of about 40 candidates to interview for the position in a national search.
The Washington Post reports VCU's athletic annual fund has grown more than 119 percent under Teague. He has also led the campaign to build a $10 million practice facility for men's and women's basketball and other sports, the Washington Post reports.
