Michigan State has officially named Alan Haller as the team’s new Athletic Director.

Reports came in on Monday that the official announcement was coming after they made their choice, and Haller’s deal will go through 2026.

As Solari’s tweet also says, Haller is the school’s 20th AD and was unanimously voted after Samuel Stanley (the school’s president) recommended that he get the job.

Haller will be replacing Bill Beekman, who moved to the role of Vice President for Strategic Initiatives. He’s been with the school for the last 35 years and was most recently the “deputy director” right behind Beekman.

During a media session on Wednesday, Haller touched on how this was his dream job and he can’t wait to get started.

He also made sure to drive the point home that it’s his responsibility to make sure that all athletes at the school succeed.

The other finalist for the job was Allen Greene, the AD of Auburn, but the school decided to go internally to fill Beekman’s job. If Haller does a great job to start, it won’t be long till MSU likely gives him a contract extension past 2026.
