K-State athletic director John Currie has been hired by the University of Tennessee to the same position, multiple reports indicated Tuesday morning.

Currie, 45, graduated with a master’s degree in sports management from Tennessee in 2003. He previously worked in the Vols athletic department as assistant athletic director under former Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton.

Currie was hired by KSU in 2009, succeeding the late Bob Krause. In April, Currie’s contract was extended through 2022 under the recommendation of former university president Kirk Schulz, who took the university president at Washington State University the month before.

KSU President Richard Myers, who succeeded Schulz, praised the extension at the time.

An official announcement is expected later this afternoon.
