Alcorn State University President Felecia M. Nave, Ph.D., announced the selection of Raynoid Dedeaux as the university’s new director of athletics on Monday. He will begin his duties on April 1.
Dedeaux, who is no stranger to Lorman, Miss., played football for the Braves and received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Alcorn State University in secondary education and athletic administration. He returns home with nearly two decades of Div. I athletics administration experience.
“We are elated to welcome AD Dedeaux back to Alcorn,” said Nave. “As a former student-athlete and alumnus, he understands Alcorn’s solid winning tradition. He is a proven leader with a track record of success as a fundraiser and innovator.
During the search for the next director of athletics, Alcorn partnered with Collegiate Sports Associates (CSA), a nationally recognized executive search firm specializing in intercollegiate athletic hiring for colleges and universities. In addition, an advisory search committee was used to ensure that multiple, diverse voices were part of the process representing current and alumni student-athletes, university leaders, and donors.
