UPDATE(8/21/14-3:00pm ET): South Carollina State officials have now announced the hiring of Paul Bryant as their new director of athletics.
Although our sources indicate that a contract hasn't been signed and an "official" announcement won't come until next week, South Carolina State University has apparently hired Paul Bryant as its next director of athletics. Bryant will come to Orangeburg from Tuscaloosa where he had served as athletics director at Stillman College for the past year. Prior to taking the job at Stillman, he served as AD at Eureka College in Eureka, IL.
Bryant will succeed Charlene Johnson who had led the department for 10 years following a brief stint as interim AD. She is now executive director of athletics fundraising.
Dr. Octavio Miro has been SCSU's interim AD since April.
