Duke is expected to elevate senior deputy athletic director Nina King to AD to replace the retiring Kevin White, Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday.

It would be King’s first stint as an athletic director.

King joined Duke in September 2008 and also serves as chief of staff for athletics. King served as chair of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee for the 2020-21 season.

Duke announced in January that White would retire in August. He has held the position since 2008.

Since White took over the department, the Blue Devils have won 23 Atlantic Coast Conference titles and eight NCAA championships: women’s tennis (2009), men’s basketball (2010, 2015), men’s lacrosse (2010, 2013, 2014) and women’s golf (2014, 2019).

Vincent Price, Duke’s president, said the university would conduct a national search for White’s successor.
