VERMILLION (AP) -- The interim athletic director at the University of South Dakota is getting the job on a more permanent basis.

The Yankton Press and Dakotan reports that David Herbster received the news Thursday during an athletic department meeting with president Jim Abbott. Herbster, the former senior associate athletic director, is in his sixth year with the department.

USD volleyball coach Matt Houk says he feels like the two have built a solid relationship, and there's a lot of trust between coach and administrator. Houk says he's confident in Herbster's ability to lead the department and to keep pushing the school to bigger and better things.

The athletic director position opened in December after David Sayler resigned to accept a position at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
