Florida State hires Duke's Wilcox as AD

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State has hired Duke administrator Stan Wilcox as its athletic director.

The school announced Wilcox's hiring during a news conference Wednesday.

School President Eric Barron says he "liked him the minute I met him" and that "I strongly believe that Stan is the perfect person for Florida State University."

Wilcox came to Duke in 2008 from Notre Dame along with AD Kevin White and had been his senior deputy director of athletics.

He managed the day-to-day oversight of the Blue Devils' athletic department and oversaw the football program, including the coordination of the schedule for coach David Cutcliffe's team.

He replaces Randy Spetman, whose exit was announced in June after five years in charge of the Seminoles' athletic department.
