WACO, Texas — Baylor has chosen Mack Rhoades from Missouri as its new athletic director.

Rhoades replaces Ian McCaw, who resigned on May 30, less than a week after he was put on probation as part of Baylor’s response to a scathing report about its failure to properly respond to allegations of sexual assaults. That report also to led the departure of football coach Art Briles.

Baylor announced the move Wednesday. Interim school president David Garland says Rhoades is a charismatic leader who pays careful attention to details and cultivates solidarity among coaches and staff.

Rhoades had been Missouri’s athletic director only since April 2015, a month after he was named to the position. He previously was AD at Houston and Akron.
