BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -The Southwestern Athletic Conference chose Duer Sharp to replace Robert Vowels Jr. as commissioner on Wednesday.
Sharp, who assumes his duties immediately, joined the SWAC staff in January 2004 as an assistant commissioner. He was promoted to associate commissioner in June 2005, coordinating the football championship and basketball tournament as well as managing the day-to-day operations of the SWAC office.
The 38-year-old Sharp's duties also included the enforcement of SWAC and NCAA policies for 18 intercollegiate sports. He also has served as the interim athletic director at Grambling State.
``I am honored and excited to lead the Southwestern Athletic Conference, and I am grateful to the Council of Presidents and Chancellors for giving me this opportunity to be a part of the exciting future of the SWAC,'' Sharp said.
Vowels stepped down in June to become vice president for educational services with the NCAA.
