USC athletic director Mike Bohn has resigned, he announced in a statement to the Los Angeles Times on Friday.
“After more than 40 years of college athletics leadership, it is the right time to step away from my position as Director of Athletics at the University of Southern California,” Bohn said. “I have dedicated my life to serving student-athletes and advancing the enterprise of intercollegiate athletics. I will always be proud of leading the program out of the most tumultuous times in the history of the profession and at USC with a restored reputation and national milestone accomplishments.”
In his statement, Bohn, 62, mentioned “ongoing health challenges” and said he wanted to focus on time with his family and “reflecting on how I can be impactful in the future.”
Bohn’s lasting impact at USC, where he had served as athletic director since November 2019, was guiding the university’s impending jump to the Big Ten in 2024 along with longtime rival UCLA.
Prior to joining USC, Bohn served as the athletic director at Cincinnati and also held the role at Idaho, San Diego State and Colorado.
