STATEMENT FROM FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT

Eric J. Barron

June 5, 2013

Effective today, Florida State University Athletics Director Randy Spetman will take on a new role as senior advisor to the Athletics Department.

During his five-year tenure, Randy established an enviable record for Florida State Athletics and has done so with the highest level of integrity and commitment.

I am pleased, therefore, that through mutual agreement, Randy will continue to advance the Athletics Department’s Strategic Plan by working with a full range of stakeholders to gather additional information that will help shape the future of Florida State athletics.

He has agreed to take on this position through the length of his current contract, which ends in February (2014).

Randy is a person of incredible character and impressive dedication to athletics. He is truly appreciated by our student athletes, because they know he genuinely cares about their success.

The overall performance of our athletic activities under his leadership, as reflected by our stellar standing in the Director’s Cup, has been the highest during the past three years in the history of the institution despite an athletics budget that is considerably smaller than athletics programs of peer universities.

What’s more, Randy oversaw those accomplishments while always ensuring compliance with NCAA rules and regulations.

I have appointed Senior Associate Athletic Director Vanessa Fuchs as the Interim Athletics Director, and the university will soon begin a search for a new director.
