DALLAS (AP) – Kansas State athletic director John Currie has been honored with the Bobby Dodd AD of the Year Award.
Currie received the award Wednesday at the annual Division I Athletics Director meetings in Dallas.
Currie oversees an athletic department that has experienced tremendous success on the field and off. The Wildcats won Big 12 titles in men’s basketball, football and baseball in the same season last year, and recently opened a $90 million renovation to the football stadium.
The renovation was part of $125 million in facility enhancements that are either completed or underway. They include an $18 million basketball training facility, tennis facility, rowing center and other incremental upgrades to the athletic department’s property.
Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder won the 2012 Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year.
