Montana State announced its new athletic director this afternoon. Kyle Brennan, previously the University of Utah Deputy Athletics Director, was named today at a press conference at the Student Union Building (SUB) on campus.

Brennan will succeed Peter Fields who was the Bobcat athletic director for the past 14yrs. Although Fields contract will run into June, it is believed that Brennan will begin his duties before then. Brennan also worked at TCU and Ball State before Utah.
