SUNSET, S.C. (AP) - Longtime Clemson senior woman administrator Barbara Kennedy-Dixon is leaving her role for another spot in the athletic department.

Clemson said Tuesday that Kennedy-Dixon will become special assistant to athletic director Dan Radakovich. She has spent the past 27 years in athletic administration and the past 10 as senior woman administrator.

The school said Kennedy-Dixon would help Radakovich with special projects or areas of critical need within the department.

Kennedy-Dixon said she'd thought about retirement in recent years and this was a good way to transition out of her fulltime role with Tigers sports.

Radakovich said Clemson would conduct a nationwide search for Kennedy-Dixon's replacement.

Also, Clemson announced former Georgia Tech and New England Patriots defensive lineman Darryl Richard would become assistant director of business operations.
