ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- Central Washington University hired its next athletic director. Dr. Dennis Francois will replace the retiring Jack Bishop. The switch will come on June 17. Right now Francois serves as Drake University's associate athletic director for external affairs. Now he is already setting the bar high with goals for CWU.
"The bottom line I guess for me is, I want to develop a program in which people are proud to be associated and that goes from a wide spectrum, to our student athletes, faculty, staff, coaches, administrators, alumni and boosters and the entire community. And that's really what my goal is as a whole is to develop a program in which people are proud to be associated," Francois said.
