Bjorn Named VP of FCS ADA


Rhode Island Director of Athletics Thorr Bjorn has been appointed the first vice president of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association, the organization announced Aug. 18.

Bjorn, who is in his 10th year at Rhode Island, will serve alongside Tennessee Tech University Director of Athletics Mark Wilson, who was tabbed as the FCS ADA president for the 2016–17 year.

“I’m very honored to represent FCS football by serving in this capacity,” Bjorn said. “FCS football provides a great opportunity to compete at a very high level for thousands of young men across the country. If there is any way that we can work to better the sport, we should be striving to achieve it.”
