ST. LOUIS- The University of Missouri will use a professional search firm in the process to find a new athletic director to replace Jim Sterk, who the school announced this week was leaving his post after five years on the job.

Parker Executive Search, which has assisted previous searches at Mizzou, will be involved with this one, too.

On Thursday, the school announced an advisory committee made up of university leaders and alumni to assist the search. Led by Curator Jeff Layman, it also includes:

Pam Bruzina, Faculty Athletics Rep
Todd Graves, Curator
Greg Hoberock, Curator
Mike Kampeter, Civic Leader
Richard Miller, Alumni
Ryan Rapp, EVP for Finance & Operations
Don Walsworth, Alumni
Michael Williams, Curator

Sterk will remain in his post until a successor is named, or September 15, whichever comes first. Under terms of a separation agreement, Sterk will be paid for his final two years of salary, along with deferred compensation.
