As the search to find a permanent athletic director continues, Wayland Baptist head football coach Butch Henderson has been named the school's interim AD, according to WBU Vice President of Enrollment Management Dr. Claude Lusk.

Lusk said a permanent director of athletics will be in place at least before the start of the fall semester. Until then, Henderson will serve as AD in an interim capacity while continuing his duties as head football coach.

"We have a great deal of confidence in Coach Henderson's ability to manage the operation of the athletic department," Lusk said. "He is an experienced, respected individual, and we appreciate him helping us through this transition. We are confident in his oversight."

Henderson has served as the Pioneers' football coach for the past three years. He has 35 years of coaching experience, most of it at Lubbock Coronado High School where he also served as athletic coordinator.

Henderson steps in for Dr. Greg Feris, who after 24 years retired as Wayland's director of athletics, effective June 30.

"We certainly appreciate Dr. Feris leaving things in very good shape as far as preparations for the upcoming academic year," Lusk said.
