Ted Miller Colorado has hired Texas Rangers president of business operations Rick George to be its next athletic director, it was announced Wednesday. George takes over for Mike Bohn, who was forced to resign in May. George's first day at Colorado will be August 12. While this seems like an out-of-the-box hire -- a major league baseball executive? -- George has plenty of college experience and knows Colorado. In fact, he spent most of his 30-year career at the collegiate level, including serving as assistant athletic director of football operations at Colorado from 1987-91.
