RICHARDSON, Texas -- The Lone Star Conference Council of Presidents on Friday accepted the resignation of commissioner Stan Wagnon.

Associate commissioner for compliance Jay Poerner has been named interim commissioner. A national search for a new commissioner will begin immediately.

“We certainly appreciate Stan’s service as LSC commissioner and wish him well in his future endeavors. Conference services and programs will carry on as normal under interim  Commissioner Poerner, in whom I have complete confidence,” said Dr. Brian May, chair of the LSC Council of Presidents and president of Angelo State University.

“The LSC presidents see this leadership transition as an opportunity to accelerate our progress in making the Lone Star Conference the pre-eminent Division II conference in the nation,” May said.

“We will be looking for a new commissioner who can build on the storied legacy of the Lone Star Conference and lead it to new heights of excellence.”
