BOONE, N.C. — Charlie Cobb, who has served as Appalachian State’s director of athletics since 2005, resigned on Thursday to accept the same position at Georgia State University, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

“It is with mixed emotions that I accept the resignation of athletic director Charlie Cobb who has accepted the position of director of athletics for Georgia State University beginning this fall,” Chancellor  Sheri N. Everts of Appalachian State said in a statement. “While I wish Charlie the best in his new endeavor, his leadership and collegiality will be missed at Appalachian.”

Cobb is expected to be introduced as Georgia State’s athletics director Friday morning. He will succeed Cheryl Levick, who has been AD for five years but is moving to a new role as special assistant to GSU’s president.
