(CBS) Northern Illinois has named Sean Frazier its new vice president/director of athletics.

Frazier previously worked at the University of Wisconsin for the last six years, where he was the deputy director of athletics.

“The fit, for me, was perfect,” Frazier said in a statement. “When I look at Northern Illinois University and Huskie Athletics, I see a community that reflects who I am as an administrator. Entering the process, I saw a lot of similarities between what is needed to take that next step at NIU, and what I have been able to bring to some of the jobs I’ve held previously.”
