Teague announced as new Minnesota AD

VCU Athletic Director Norwood Teague has been announced as the new AD at the University of Minnesota this afternoon.

Late Sunday, Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports reported Teague was the lone finalist for the position. Teague flew to the Minnesota campus today but Goodman reported the deal was done prior to the trip.

Elizabeth Conlisk of the Big Ten Network is also reporting Teague will be introduced as the Minnesota AD live at 3:45PM EST on that network.

Norwood had served as AD at VCU since July of 2006 where he grew the program to new heights.

The Carolina native managed to hire, and almost more miraculously, retain Shaka Smart after VCU’s historic run to the Final 4 and encore performance in this year’s NCAA tournament. He oversaw the construction of the new luxury Tommy J. West suite section to the Stuart C. Siegel Center, grew VCU’s annual fund over 119%, and most recently put forth a plan to build a brand new 10 million dollar practice facility.
