"We are deeply indebted to Katie for her 14 years of loyalty and dedication to the Razorbacks," UA Athletic Director Frank Broyles said. "From her four years with the Razorback Foundation through her 10 years here in the athletic department, I have found her to be one of the most competent and talented administrators I have ever worked with. Her expertise has served the athletic department's need for astute fiscal management in difficult economic times and through several significant facility construction projects.
"I have relied on her counsel in many areas and know that she will play a very important role in working with Terry Don Phillips at Clemson. We will all miss Katie very much and we wish her well as she accepts this new challenge in her career."
