Purinton Officially Introduced as A-State’s 13th All-Time AD

May 9, 2022

JONESBORO, Ark. (5/9/22) – The Arkansas State Athletics Department held a press conference Monday afternoon in front of a near-capacity crowd inside the Centennial Bank Athletics Operations Center auditorium officially introducing Jeff Purinton as the Red Wolves’ 13th all-time Athletics Director.
 
Announced last Wednesday, May 4, as A-State’s Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics, Purinton is a highly-respected and veteran athletics administrator who most recently spent the last seven years as part of the Alabama Athletics Department’s executive staff.
 
Purinton comes to A-State following a 15-year stint at the University of Alabama, but his path to Jonesboro also included professional stops working with the Orange Bowl Committee (2006-07) and the Florida State Athletics Department (1994-2006) while also having a national presence on multiple college football committees.
