A person familiar with the decision says Kansas is finalizing a deal to hire Northwestern administrator Travis Goff to be its athletic director. Goff is a KU alum. The person told The Associated Press that Kansas was expected to make the hiring of Goff official by Monday night. Goff has been been at Northwestern since 2012. He most recently was deputy athletic director and assistant vice president for development. He played a role in fundraising that led to massive facilities upgrades at Northwestern. Kansas has been searching for an athletic director since Jeff Long resigned almost a month ago. He was criticized for his hiring of longtime friend Les Miles, who parted ways with Kansas amid allegations of sexual misconduct dating to the football coach’s days at LSU.
