TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Multiple reports are circulating about Florida State Athletic Director Stan Wilcox's imminent departure from the university for a position with the NCAA.

It was first reported by Bruce Feldman of The Athletic and later confirmed by Thrasher himself to the Orlando Sentinel. We've reached out to the university for official confirmation and are waiting to hear back.

Wilcox was named FSU’s 11th full-time Director of Athletics in August of 2013 and promoted to Vice President in July of 2016.

Under him, Seminoles have won three national championships in a span that is generally regarded as one of the most successful in the history of Seminole athletics. 

Before arriving at Duke, Wilcox, a former basketball letterman at Notre Dame, spent three years as the deputy director of athletics at his alma mater. Prior to returning to South Bend in 2005, he served 11 years as an associate commissioner of the BIG EAST Conference.
