The Alcorn State athletic program has reached back to a reliable source to temporarily lead their intercollegiate program.

LLJuan Weir, associate director of athletics and senior administrator, has been named interim athletics director, the Southwestern Athletic Conference school has announced.

Weir, an Alcorn graduate, has been with the University for 16 years and has been in her current position since 2008.

“I believe in Alcorn athletics,” Weir said in a story posted on the Alcorn State website. “Working together, we can and will accomplish more. I believe in the power of members of the athletic family—our athletes, coaches, employees, student workers and alumni.”

The position has been in a state of flux since 2012 when Patric David Simon accepted that job in February of that year, but abruptly resigned two months later.  Simon, who had been at Langston before coming to Alcorn, then turned up as Tuskegee's athletic director that summer. He then resigned again, this time eight months into his Tuskegee tenure. He cited personal reasons.

Former NFL player Dwayne White became the interim athletic director at Alcorn after Simon's resignation.  White stepped down from the post last week.

School officials are searching for a full-time athletic director.
