SDSU Athletic Director Jim Sterk

As part of Professor Scott Tinley’s second-to-last class, San Diego State Athletic Director Jim Sterk stopped by to talk to the SMBA ’11 class. Sterk was Washington State University’s Athletic Director for 10 years before taking the job at SDSU and he explained to the class what he’s trying to accomplish at State.

Sterk also listed his priorities in the upcoming months, which included hydro-therapy and resource acquisitions. He also discussed how he wants the student body and the community to be more involved, which is why SDSU will introduce a junior mascot for children during the football season.

Sterk also discussed how much he loves his job, conference realignment, student-athletes, a new football stadium, alumni ticket giveaways, and more about where his priorities lie.

As Sterk said: “We’re educating kids and we are—at first—educators. It’s not about the revenue first.”
