NFL Executive Ray Anderson Is New ASU Athletic Director

January 10, 2014

Arizona State University has introduced its new Athletic Director, NFL executive Ray Anderson.  Anderson is taking a big pay cut to head athletics at the school, which he says shows how much he values the opportunity.

“I don’t need NFL money,” Anderson said. “I need gratification and I need the chance to be part of something really special and really dynamic and really life-changing.”

Anderson says he sees the position as a destination and not another rung on his career ladder. He says he plans to be at ASU as long as he’s effective as a teammate and collaborator.
