AD Currie joins Kansas State

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State introduced John Currie as
athletic director on Monday and he promised to get to work right
away familiarizing himself with the school.

The 38-year-old Currie received a five-year contract with an
annual base salary of $350,000 plus incentives.

He was hired and introduced at a Monday morning news conference
by Dr. Kirk Schulz, who will take over as Kansas State president on
June 15.

Kansas State is in the unusual position of having two new top
leaders, and neither has ties to the school or the area.
