The FSU Board of Trustees meeting began at 1:00pm this afternoon. During University President Dr. Eric Barron's opening update, he gave trustees the opportunity to express what they would like to see in a new athletics director. The former director, Randy Spetman, has been reassigned to an advisory role.

One of the trustees says she wants to find a new athletics director who is a business CEO, not a former coach. Other trustees say they want someone who will beef up the football schedule with more competitive teams. Other attributes trustees say they're looking for include: having tremendous energy, ability to fundraise, and someone who is well-established and well-respected in the industry.
