WVU executive deputy athletic director and chief operating officer Steve Uryasz is officially the new vice president of intercollegiate athletics at Tarleton State.
The hiring of Uryasz was announced by Tarleton State on Thursday evening, just 24 hours after a report by ESPN’s Pete Thamel suggested he was the leading candidate.

Uryasz was promoted to deputy athletic director in the summer of 2021 and has worked with Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.
The below is part of Uryasyz’s bio on the Tarleton State website.
“At WVU, more than $100 million in capital projects have been completed under his watch, including the addition of revenue generating premium donor areas like Club 35 and the Clark Mountaineer Club. He also guided a $10 million renovation to create the WVU Athletics Performance Center in support of Olympic sport student-athletes. A restructure of the sports medicine program was completed as well, centered around an exclusive agreement with WVU Medicine for services.”
WVU Athletics has yet to release a statement about Uryasz’s departure, but assistant athletics director and the head of football communications Mike Montoro did offer his own comments on X (Twitter).
Congrats @STEVEURYASZ! Good luck with your new gig! Thanks for being such a good dude and I am fortunate to have worked with you! You will be missed!,” said Montoro.
