Senior Vice President Christine Wilkinson, the daughter of ASU coaching legend Bill Kajikawa, is entering her third stint as interim athletic director.
At 6:53 p.m. today, Athletic Director Gene Smith will watch the sun set over "A" Mountain from his corner office that overlooks Sun Devil Stadium.

When the sun rises Saturday morning, Senior Vice President Christine Wilkinson will begin her third stint as interim athletic director. Wilkinson said she's prepared to hit the ground running, even though she wasn't approached about a return to the athletic department until last Wednesday. Wilkinson's transition should be less turbulent now that Senior Associate AD Tom Collins is out of the running for the vacant AD position at Middle Tennessee State.
