Miami University is naming David Sayler as its new Director of Athletics. Sayler comes from the University of South Dakota where he was in charge of intercollegiate athletics for two-and-a-half years.
Sayler replaces Brad Bates who left in October to take the athletic director position at Boston College.
The final steel beam on Miami University's new student center is now in place. The support was placed yesterday during a special "topping out" ceremony.
Following tradition, the beam was painted white and signed by key contributors as well as university officials and anyone who came by before the ceremony.
