Senior associate athletic director Reid Sigmon is leaving Kansas State to become chief financial officer for the new college football playoff and national championship game.

Sigmon, who’s been at K-State for four years, will join Bowl Championship Series executive director Bill Hancock and chief operating office Michael Kelly beginning April 22 in Dallas. The new group will oversee the four-school playoff system, which begins in the 2014 season.

Sigmon is in charge of K-State athletics’ daily operations and manages the financial and legal matters for the department.

“One cannot overestimate the impact of Reid on the growth and development of our athletics program from fiscal and organizational turmoil and a forecasted $2 million operating deficit four years ago to one now recognized nationally as a model of fiscal stability with a $59 million budget this year along with $100 million in ongoing athletic facility upgrades,” K-State athletic director John Currie said in a statement.
