Alabama State University officials announced today that Dr. Jason Cable has been named the new director of intercollegiate athletics.
In making the announcement, President Quinton T. Ross, Jr., said Cable’s selection comes after a month-long, nationwide search.
“We empaneled a seven-member search committee to conduct interviews and recommend the top candidate from the field of applicants,” said Ross. “Our search began in June, and the committee was extremely thorough in their approach to vetting the candidates. I would like to thank all of the committee members for their excellent work on behalf of the university.”
Cable has served as the senior associate commissioner for administration with the SWAC since December of 2018.
“I am excited about having Dr. Cable join our leadership team,” Ross said. “He has the experience and his credentials are unquestionable. He embodies the future of ASU athletics.”
Cable said that he looks forward to having the opportunity to lead ASU athletics.
“I am honored and humbled to join President Ross and the Alabama State University family,” Cable said. “ASU has such a rich history and winning tradition founded upon the unwavering pursuit of excellence. I vow a relentless effort to build champions in everything we do. I look forward to working in partnership with our campus and business communities to provide our students, alumni, fans, and the city of Montgomery experiences that unify us and make Hornet Nation proud.”
Cable will take the helm of the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics at ASU on Aug. 15.
