At times overcome by rare displays of emotion, Missouri athletic director Mike Alden said Friday he has reached ”the perfect time” to step down after 17 years. Speaking to students, staff and fans on campus, the 56-year-old Alden said he’s thought about resigning for years and made the decision after consulting his family and faith. Citing both Martin Luther King Jr. and Christian pastor Rick Warren, Alden explained that he’s always aimed to be ”selfless” and felt it was time for someone else to lead, adding that there are no issues with his health. Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin, whose one-year anniversary with the school comes Sunday, said Alden transformed Missouri athletics and was a factor in his decision to leave as president of Texas A&M for Missouri.

Missouri AD Mike Alden to step down after 17 years (Yahoo Sports)

Missouri athletic director Mike Alden is stepping down after a 17-year tenure marked by several high-profile coaching hires, significant facility upgrades and the school’s 2012 move from the Big 12 Conference to the SEC. Alden plans to leave in August but will remain at Mizzou as an instructor in its College of Education and an administrator in a new global service-learning program. The Chicago-area native with roots on a family farm outside Columbia took charge of Missouri athletics in 1998 after working as Texas State’s athletic director in San Marcos. In 2000, he hired Gary Pinkel, a little-known coach at Toledo.

College football’s free-agent market is open and Oregon is searching for the next Russell Wilson to replace Marcus Mariota. FCS All-America quarterback Vernon Adams from Eastern Washington plans to be in Eugene, Oregon, this weekend visiting with Ducks coaches. The player’s original school still needs to sign off, but it is as close to free agency as college football gets.

Paul Chryst wisely kept close tabs on recruits in his home state of Wisconsin while he was at Pittsburgh. Now that he is coaching the Badgers, Chryst seems to be sliding comfortably back on to the recruiting trail back home with national signing day approaching. ”Certainly in Wisconsin, it’s a pride state,” said Gary Westerman, coach at Bay Port High School in Green Bay. ”One thing in talking with coach Chryst, he said, ‘People in Wisconsin want to win football games, but they also want to know the name on the back of the jersey, too.”’ Not that Chryst and his staff aren’t looking beyond the Midwest for talent.
