UCF Hires Terry Mohajir as its New Athletics Director

UCF’s search for a new AD has finally come to an end! There was a lot of talk and speculation that UCF had been zeroing in on Arkansas State AD and as it turns out, those rumors were right. UCF fans are loving this move and here is why.

Why Should You Care?

Terry Mojahir has been the AD at Arkansas State since 2012 where he’s paved the way for the Red Wolves to secure 25 conference championships.

Mojahir flipped the Arkansas State athletic department's total revenue from $15.3 million to over 43 million in 2018-19. That’s an increase of over 181%!!

Mojahir has been able to raise funds and actually set record-breaking numbers while at Arkansas State, resulting in upgrades for the football stadium, athlete facilities, and an indoor/outdoor football practice facility.

Mojahir is one of 13 members of the College Football Playoff selection committee. Yes, let me repeat that again. Mojahir is one of 13 members of the College Football Playoff selection committee!

UCF will benefit from a $6,093,750 cash influx from the combined buyouts of White ($2.5 million) and Heupel ($3,593,750).

Things are starting to turn around here in Central Florida, I can smell it in the air. The great news about this hire is Mojahir is no rookie to hiring coaches. What head coach is going to be joining Mojahir in the Sunshine State? Look to see a hire here in the following week as this is a top priority for Mojahir.

Send me who you think is going to be UCF's new hire at HC on Twitter, @Smoke_EtheBear. If you guess correctly, one winner will receive a surprise shortly after the hire! Be sure to follow @SmokeSportss for the best sports content and degenerate gambling talk!
