Penn State president Eric J. Barron appointed six staff and faculty members and administrators to serve on a committee that will conduct a national search for the next athletic director, the university announced Thursday in a news release.

They are Linda Caldwell, a professor and Penn State’s NCAA faculty athletics representative; Julie Del Giorno, athletics integrity officer; Charmelle Green, associate athletic director and the department’s senior women’s administrator; Robert Pangborn, vice president and dean for undergraduate education; Tom Poole, vice president for administration, and Coquese Washington, women’s basketball coach.

David Gray, senior vice president for finance and business, already had been appointed by Barron to chair the committee.

The committee is seeking a new athletic director to succeed Dave Joyner, who announced on June 17 that he planned to retire effective Aug. 1. Penn State’s athletic department oversees 31 varsity sports and an annual budget of $115 million.
