JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Terry Mohajir received a big honor Wednesday morning.
The Arkansas State vice chancellor of intercollegiate athletics was selected to the College Football Playoff Selection Committee. Mohajir will serve a three-year term starting this spring.
Mohajir returned to his alma mater in 2012 as athletic director. Under his leadership, Arkansas State Athletics has soared in the conference and national rankings, claiming dozens of Sun Belt Conference championships and individual NCAA titles. A-State achieved its highest overall rankings in the majority of its sports during his tenure, including all-time marks in the Capital One Director’s Cup.
Academically, A-State has set record after record for overall student-athlete composite GPA and graduation success rates. In fundraising, Mohajir has secured private gifts and funding to expand Centennial Bank Stadium, secured naming rights for First National Bank Arena, and overseen more than $80 million in construction and facility renovations. His guidance has increased the value of the Red Wolves brand in athletic marketing and sponsorship agreements, including signing of recent agreements with Learfield and Adidas which were the largest in school history.
