The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has hired former Ohio State athletic director Andy Geiger. The school says Geiger will begin work immediately. In a statement, Geiger said the opportunity was meaningful because he'll be working ''just a few blocks from where my father was born and raised.'' Geiger was the athletic director at Ohio State from 1994 to 2005. Geiger oversaw several major construction projects at Ohio State, including the construction of the Jerome Schottenstein Center arena and a significant renovation of Ohio Stadium. But the school also weathered high-profile scandals during Geiger's term, including the dismissal of running back Maurice Clarett amid allegations of improper benefits and the firing of basketball coach Jim O'Brien after he admitted giving money to a recruit.
