Jamie Wood announced last Wednesday on Twitter that he is officially Texas A&M’s new assistant athletic director of NIL.

“From the Buckeye state to the Lone Star state, I’m excited to head west to Texas A&M and help make a lasting impact in their department as Assistant AD of NIL,” Wood wrote in a tweet.

The former assistant director of compliance at Ohio State is the first to take on this brand new role for the Aggies. This move is a way for Texas A&M to strengthen its NIL presence. 

An Ohio native, Wood was a two-year letter-winner in football before injuries ended his career. Wood had been part of the compliance staff at Ohio State since 2016.

“​​Leaving the nest for the first time brings up all kinds of emotions, but I’m ready,” Wood added.

In the first year following the passage of NIL legislation, Texas A&M reportedly brought in over $4 million in NIL money during the 2021-2022 school year. That number has only grown, with the football program leading the way.
