Chaves interviewed for the job on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
The opposite finalists have been Western Michigan senior affiliate athletic director Monty Porter, UND Champions Membership government director Mike Mannausau and Texas-San Antonio deputy athletic director Kellie Elliott.
“I’m excited concerning the influence Invoice Chaves’ management may have on an already wonderful athletics program right here at UND,” UND President Mark Kennedy stated. “I need to thank the search committee, chaired by Provost Tom DiLorenzo, for its wonderful work. Thanks partially to a brand new regulation that protected the anonymity of the candidates, we had a superb pool to select from. We have been happy with the number of the 4 candidates, which made it a difficult choice. We acquired wonderful enter from the boards, from those that attended interview periods, and from the search committee members. All the candidates fared properly, however in the long run Invoice was a notch forward of the opposite candidates.”
Chaves will substitute Brian Faison, who introduced in October that he would quickly retire as athletic director.
