Missouri interim athletic director Wren Baker has been named the athletic director at North Texas, UNT officials announced Friday.
Baker started at Missouri in 2015 as deputy athletic director, where he oversaw marketing, licensing, the ticket office and strategic communications. He held the same position at Memphis from 2013-15. Before that, he was athletic director at Division II Northwest Missouri State from 2010-13.
Baker, who takes over Aug. 22, will succeed Rick Villarreal, who resigned in May after almost 16 years at UNT.
