BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU has formalized an agreement to bring in Scott Woodward as the university's next athletic director.

Woodward, whose hiring was announced Thursday morning, has been Texas A&M's athletic director since 2016 and held the same post at Washington for eight years before that. He takes over at LSU on the heels of the university's announcement a day earlier that 11th-year athletic director Joe Alleva would be stepping down and be reassigned to another job within the institution.

Woodward is a Baton Rouge native and LSU graduate who returns to his alma mater following a pair of high-profile coaching hires for the Aggies within the past 18 months.
