A Kosciusko native has been named interim athletics director at Mississippi State following the resignation of John Cohen.
Bracky Brett, the school’s Executive Senior Associate Athletics Director for Compliance, has been named to that position by MSU President Mark Keenum.
“Bracky is well-known and highly respected in the Southeastern Conference and across the NCAA and I know he will maintain stability and focus as we move forward with a search for a new athletics director,” said Keenum in a press release from HailState.com.
Brett has served in his current position since January of 2002.
“We want to thank John Cohen for his leadership of our department,” Brett told Breezy News. “I appreciate the confidence Dr. Mark Keenum has placed in me to serve as the Interim Athletic Director for Mississippi State during this transition.”
According to that release, Cohen informed Keenum Monday morning or some time over the weekend that he would be leaving his position effective immediately.
Cohen is expected to be named Athletics Director at Auburn, according to multiple reports.
John Cohen has informed Mississippi State officials of his resignation from the school, sources tell @SINow.
The expectations is he will be named the Auburn AD as soon as today in a deal that was being finalized over the weekend.
