The University of Missouri introduces its new Athletic Director

Desiree Reed Francois will be the first female to hold the position at the school.

She’s been involved with intercollegiate athletics for more than 25 years and most recently served as the AD at the University Of Nevada Las Vegas.

Reed Francois also spent time at numerous other institutions including: Virginia Tech, the University Of Tennessee and San Jose State University.

“Our student athletes will always be at the forefront of what we do. They’ll be at the forefront of our decision making processes and they deserve an athletic department with a championship culture
that President Choi spoke about. We want everyone to give their absolute best every single day.”

Reed Francois and her husband have a son who is attending MU this Fall as a journalism student.
