Jacobs was named Auburn’s 14th director of athletics in 2004, after working in almost every area of the Auburn Athletics Department for the previous 20 years. Under Jacobs’ leadership, Auburn athletics has made major strides benefitting Auburn student-athletes, coaches and fans. The department has focused on five strategic goals under his leadership: winning, graduating student-athletes, managing the department’s fiscal affairs, complying with SEC and NCAA rules and providing a positive game-day experience.
