Report: Villanova hires USC's Mark Jackson as new athletic director

A Philadelphia Inquirer report has the associate AD at the University of Southern California traveling east to accept the AD job at 'Nova.

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images's Mike Jensen is reporting that when Villanova has their press conference at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday, they will be introducing USC associate athletic director Mark Jackson as the university's new athletic director.

The university had been pursuing a new AD after the incumbent, Vince Nicastro, announced he was stepping down to assume a role with the school's law program as the article from Jensen mentions.
