MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -Less than a year after taking over as Kansas State's athletic director, Bob Krause is leaving to direct fundraising for a new K-State campus in Olathe.

Krause's resignation as AD is effective March 31. He took the position in April 2008 after serving as the university's vice president for institutional advancement. He has been with the Kansas State for 23 years.

School president Jon Wefald says deputy athletic director Jim Epps will serve as interim athletic director until a replacement is selected.
