Washington To Remain Prairie View AD

By  | 

PRAIRIE VIEW -- Prairie View's interim athletics director has been named to the job permanently.

Fred Washington moved into the job when Charles McClelland took
a job at Texas Southern.

Washington, who was interim AD for about 11 months, told KRIV-TV
that he's been really satisfied with the coaching staff, the commitment from the university and from the Texas A&M system.

Washington says keeping women's basketball coach Cynthia
Cooper-Dyke at Prairie View will be a priority. She is in the last
year of her contract.

The former WNBA standout was recently named a finalist for the
Hall of Fame. Washington knows keeping her at the school could be
more difficult if she is selected for the honor.
