USC Upstate says a former North Carolina State athletic director will be the temporary leader of its athletic programs.

The Spartanburg school named Lee Fowler its interim athletics director Monday. Fowler will lead the program while the school conducts a national search for a new leader.

Fowler currently is director of basketball operations for the Sun Belt Conference. Before that, he spent 10 years as athletic director at N.C. State.

USC Upstate is looking for a new athletic director after Mike Hall decided to leave the school to become commissioner of the Southern States Athletic Conference in the NAIA.
