Texas A&M University-Commerce athletic director Ryan Ivey says leaving A&M-Commerce for Austin Peay State University in Tennessee is "bittersweet," and one that was difficult for him to make, even though Austin Peay is an NCAA Division 1 member.  A&M-C athletic teams won six Lone Star Conference championships in 2014-15 under Ivey's leadership.  He says a new special-events center is the number-one thing the A&M-C athletic program needs in the future.
