Steve Patterson, ASU Athletic Director

The Arizona St. Sun Devils have a new athletic director in Steve Patterson. Can he provide a stronger grip on the athletic department than what Lisa Love provided?

Steve Patterson was mostly recently the managing director of the ASU athletic marketing division Sun Devil Sports Group. Patterson also had a lot of fund raising responsibilities. Before his time in Tempe, Patterson worked in upper management mainly in Houston. He worked with the Rockets in the NBA, the Aeros in minor-league hockey, the Texans in the NFL, and before those stints the Trail Blazers. He also set up his own firm in Pro Sports Consulting in November 2007.

It's a pretty impressive resume, but no major college experience out there. Patterson might have a bit of a learning curve to deal with.

Talk about Patterson as the new ASU athletic director with Sun Devils fans at House of Sparky.
