Florida A&M will be searching for a new person to take over its athletic department very soon.
Milton Overton has left his post as director of athletics at FAMU to assume the same position at Kennesaw State, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. His resignation is effective Dec. 1.
A former football player at Oklahoma, Overton told the paper he made the move in order to be closer to his sons.
“It’s with a heavy heart,” he said to the Tallahassee Democrat. “I really enjoyed FAMU. Great people and I’ve had a great opportunity here. This is just a really good opportunity (with Kennesaw State), it’s difficult to turn down. It gets me closer to my boys. My son’s in high school, next year is the senior year.”
