FRESNO, Calif. — Fresno State has introduced that athletic director Terry Tumey will probably be leaving the college after six years.

Fresno State president Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval mentioned Thursday that the 2 sides had “mutually agreed” to the choice. Rob Acunto will function interim athletic director.
