UCF’s New AD Terry Mohajir Wows Followers with His Monitor Report, TikTok Dances
The UCF Knights athletics program has found its new leader. And Knights fans are thrilled.
Terry Mohajir will replace Danny White as UCF sporting director, the university confirmed on Tuesday. White left his position as UCFs AD for the same title in Tennessee, taking Josh Heupel with him.
At UCF, Mohajir’s first job is to find the next head coach for football. According to an email sent to UCF donors, he’s already started the process.
Mohajir comes from the state of Arkansas, where he has been the sports director since 2012. He is known for his track record of hiring football head coaches bred for success – Brian Harsin (Auburn), Blake Anderson (State of Utah) and Butch Jones (Tennessee).
UCF fans desperate to find out who the new Knights football coach will be seemed to approve of Mohajir’s hiring because of his fun personality, social media presence, and position on the college football playoffs selection committee.
Here’s what Knights fans had to say about the university’s new sporting director, Terry Mohajir:
Think about what happened; I will miss @ TerryMohajirAD. In a long career, there has not been a sports officer or coach as direct, honest, and approachable as TMo. Orlando is spoiled.

Terry Mohajir is a great contributor to #UCF. Good experience hiring soccer coaches and the state of Arkansas recently opened a new soccer building that can rival most of the Power 5. Https://t.co/7Haj0EGD0R

Terry Mohajir makes Danny White look like an introvert, I don’t even know how that is possible

I love this rental! Seems like he has great energy and a good track record of hiring coaches. Raised funds and built facilities in Ark St. Former student athlete. Left to beat the P5 for his school. Very DW-like. https://t.co/4k2tgSm3Hw
