Former Notre Dame basketball player Stan Wilcox is the new Athletic Director at Florida State.

The school announced Wilcox's hiring during a news conference Wednesday.

School President Eric Barron says he "liked him the minute I met him" and that "I strongly believe that Stan is the perfect person for Florida State University."

Wilcox has been at Duke since 2008, arriving from Notre Dame along with AD Kevin White. Wilcox had been senior deputy director of athletics under White at ND from 2005-2008.

He managed the day-to-day oversight of the Blue Devils' athletic department and oversaw the football program, including the coordination of the schedule for coach David Cutcliffe's team.

He replaces Randy Spetman, whose exit was announced in June after five years in charge of the Seminoles' athletic department.
