BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) - Jeff Konya is leaving his post as athletic director at Cal State Bakersfield.

He's accepted an athletic director job at Oakland University in Michigan, CSUB said Monday. His last day will be Aug. 4.

Konya has been at CSUB since 2010 and led the transition to the Western Athletic Conference.

Konya replaced Rudy Carvajal, who enjoyed a 38-year run as CSUB's first athletic director.

"Jeff has done a great job in establishing 'The New Gold Standard' for athletics at CSUB," President Dr. Horace Mitchell said in a news release. "I am sure he will be equally successful at Oakland, and I have offered him my best wishes and regards."
