Jon Palumbo, VCU's deputy director of athletics since October 2012, is set to become the athletics director at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi announced Wednesday that Palumbo is the sole finalist for its athletics director position.

"Islander Athletics is poised for great things, and I am humbled and excited to have the opportunity to join such a dedicated group of people," Palumbo said in a statement.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi competes in the Southland Conference.

During his time at VCU, Palumbo put together the financing plan for and oversaw construction of the Rams' $25 million Basketball Development Center.

He was also a lead negotiator of VCU's 10-year year Learfield Sports multimedia rights deal, which was announced in June 2015 and which guarantees the school $20 million.

Before VCU, Palumbo worked at Maryland, American University and William & Mary.

He earned his master's and bachelor's degrees from La Salle. He also played baseball there and was the team captain in 2001.

According to a release from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Palumbo's appointment is pending approval from the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.
