Cobb resigns as App State Athletic Director

Posted August 15, 2014

Appalachian State Director of Athletics Charlie Cobb has resigned, chancellor Sheri N. Everts announced Friday.

Cobb is leaving Boone to become the Director of Athletics for Georgia State University in the fall. The search for a new director of athletics will begin immediately. Senior Associate Athletic Director Rick Beasley will serve as Interim Athletic Director until a new director of athletics is named.

"I thank Charlie for his dedication to our university and wish the entire Cobb family well as they move on to this new challenge," Everts said in a statement.

Cobb spent ten years at Appalachian State where he recently spearheaded the Mountaineers move to the NCAA Division I FBS Sun Belt Conference July 1. During his time at App State, the football program won three NCAA Division I national championships, the university won nine-consecutive Commissioner’s Cup championships and $50 million of facility enhancements were done.

Prior to his arrival in Boone, Cobb was a member of the athletics department at North Carolina State University from 1998-2005. A four-year football letterwinner at NC State from 1987-90, Cobb served as the Wolfpack’s senior associate athletics director for external operations for the seven years prior to his arrival in Boone.

    More convenient that he left shortly after our outgoing chancellor. Cobb helped grow our programs in some aspects, and hurt them in others. Hope he does well at Ga. State. For the record, he oversaw the move from FCS to FBS football. App has been in division one since it left the NAIA in the 1970's.

    How convenient. Leads the move to Division 1, then bails out.
