Texas A&M won't be bringing in Georgia Tech's Don Radakovich for their open athletic director slot.

The Texas A&M Aggies have a new conference, college football has a new playoff system, but after the retirement of Bill Byrne, A&M does not yet have a new athletic director. Rumor was the powers that be in College Station had their eye on Georgia Tech athletic director Don Radakovich, but unfortunately for them, he's not looking to take the position. Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

“I am sure Texas A&M is a great job,” Radakovich said. “But I have one at Tech.”

Radakovich has been with Georgia Tech since 2006 and has previously turned down overtures from both the Tennessee Volunteers and Miami Hurricanes, choosing instead to stay steadfast with the Yellow Jackets. Although the prospect of moving to the SEC had to have been appealing, the report makes it pretty clear that Radakovich didn't seriously consider it.

As the Aggies officially leave the Big 12 for the SEC this weekend, it appears they won't have anybody manning the helm of the athletics department.
