Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman, who had held the position since 2012, has stepped down. Brent Zwerneman of The Houston Chronicle posted the breaking development on Twitter.

Hyman has also released the following statement regarding his departure:
“I appreciate my time here at Texas A&M University and I am proud of our student-athletes’ achievements both on the field and in the classroom. The best part of an AD’s job is forming wonderful relationships with student-athletes, colleagues, former students and Texas A&M has been no exception. I will always value my time here and the friendships I have made with Aggies. I wish Texas A&M University nothing but continued success.”
And the dominoes continue to fall in College Station, strongly suggesting that the football program could be in line for a full-on makeover. Last month, quarterbacks Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray both opted to transfer, with Murray heading to Oklahoma and Allen just today announcing his commitment to Houston. On top of that, the university and offensive coordinator Jake Spavital agreed to “mutually part ways” while another rumor states that coach Kevin Sumlin is interested in making the jump to the NFL.
That all being said, Hyman’s departure combined with everything else that has happened is probably still just the tip of the iceberg, so stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates from College Station!
