SAN DIEGO (AP) -Washington State athletic director Jim Sterk has agreed to take the same job at San Diego State.

Sterk had been the AD at Washington State since 2000. He also has worked for North Carolina, Maine, Seattle, Pacific, Tulane, and Portland State, where he was the athletic director from 1995 until took over the Cougars.

San Diego State president Stephen Weber announced Sterk's hiring on Monday.

Sterk, 53, replaces Jeff Schemmel, who resigned in November after a university investigation determined there were irregularities in his reimbursement requests for travel.

Sterk's contract will be finalized in the next few weeks.
