A former Penn State athletic director has a new gig.

David Joyner has been named senior vice president and executive director of the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, Fla., according to PRNewswire. He will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the institute, including managing business partnerships, branding and recruitment.

Joyner is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and earned a medical degree from Penn State. He served residencies in general and orthopedic surgery at the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

Joyner is a former member of the Penn State board of trustees and became the university’s athletic director at the height of the Jerry Sandusky scandal in November 2011, replacing former AD Tim Curley.

He helped steer the athletic department through historic sanctions levied by the NCAA and hired two head football coaches — Bill O’Brien and James Franklin — in as many years and retired in August, after two and a half years as AD.

The Andrews Institute provides orthopedics and sports medicine care and is based in Gulf Breeze, near Pensacola.
