A person familiar with the move says South Carolina's Erick Hyman has accepted an offer to become Texas A&M's new athletic director.
The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because neither South Carolina nor Texas A&M has publically announced the move.
The 61-year-old Hyman has spent the past seven years as the Gamecocks' AD and is a former athletic director at TCU.
Texas A&M is officially joining the Southeastern Conference on Sunday after leaving the Big 12 and Hyman's experience in the SEC should help the Aggies make the transition.
During his tenure at South Carolina, the Gamecocks enjoyed an unprecedented level of athletic success. The baseball team won two national titles and the football team won a program-record 11 games last year.
