President Kevin Satterlee has named Pauline Thiros ISU’s interim athletic director.

Prior to naming Thiros, the university said that the interim athletic director would not be considered an applicant for the permanent position, which was left vacant by former athletic director Jeff Tingey when he was placed on paid administrative leave Aug. 31.

Thiros’s main goal as interim athletic director is to set the stage for the next athletic director.

A committee is expected to be appointed by President Satterlee to undergo a national search for a new athletic director. This process may take four to six months. Thiros will lead the athletic department until there’s a permanent hire for the position.

“I’m excited,” Thiros said. “I love athletics. I loved athletics when I competed in volleyball here as a student-athlete and I haven’t really stopped since.”

Thiros came to ISU in 1990 as a walk-on volleyball player, and her teammates voted her captain all four years. She earned Big Sky all-academic honors in her junior and senior seasons and was named the Big Sky Conference Scholar Athlete of the Year in 1994. She was inducted into the ISU Sports Hall of Fame in 2006.
