Georgia State University has named Charlie Cobb as its new director of athletics.
Cobb will join the Panthers from Appalachian State University, where he's been for the past nine years. He replaces Cheryl Levick, who stepped down in May to become special assistant to Georgia State President Mark Becker.
“Charlie Cobb is a proven program builder and winner,” Becker said in a statement. “He has a remarkable record of achievement at Appalachian State, and I look forward to working with him to take our athletic programs to new heights in Atlanta and in the Sun Belt Conference.”
