Jeff Konya is stepping down from his post as California State University, Bakersfield’s athletic director effective August 4. Konya has accepted the same position at Oakland University in his home state of Michigan.
Konya’s biggest accomplishment during his three-year tenure in Bakersfield was ushering CSUB into the Western Athletic Conference.
Konya, who was born in Michigan and whose father has ties to Oakland University was hired for the CSUB Athletic Director position in November 2010, after serving as the AD at Northeastern State in Oklahoma.
