COLORADO SPRINGS – The U.S. Air Force Academy is now actively searching for the next athletic director six months after Jim Knowlton left the job to become the Director of Athletics at UC Berkeley.

The firm Parker Executive Search out of Atlanta is handling the nationwide effort to find qualified candidates.
A list of candidates should be delivered to Academy leaders later this fall.

“This new hiring process enables the Academy to attract talented, experienced applicants who will be compensated in a manner consistent with similar positions in the Mountain West Conference and enable enhanced development efforts, while maintaining the leadership and accountability we need in this position,” said General Silveria in a release.

Colonel Jennifer Block has served as interim Athletic Director since April.

Potential can submit materials, including applications, letters of nomination, or expressions of interest for the career opportunity to Parker Executive Search in the career opportunities section of their website. The deadline is October 30th.
