JONESBORO, Ark. – There is a new leader of the pack as Arkansas State University welcomed new athletic director Tom Bowen to Jonesboro during a news conference Thursday.

Bowen previously led the athletics operations at the University of Memphis and San Jose State University. He also worked in the front office with the San Francisco 49ers.

He is replacing Terry Mohajir, who left Arkansas State in February to take the same job with the University of Central Florida.
