Florida A&M University hired Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow Sr. as its new athletic director, reports ESPN.com's Brett McMurphy.

According to the report, Winslow will be introduced on Wednesday. Winslow replaces interim athletic director Michael Smith, who was on the job for 10 months.

Smith had replaced Derek Horne, who was fired last June after three years. During Horne's tenure, the school went through a hazing scandal involving the Marching 100 band.

More from ESPN.com:

Previously Winslow was vice president for athletics and wellness at Lakeland College in Plymouth, Wis., from August 2012 until resigning on March 29, 2013.

Prior to his eight-month stint at Lakeland College, Winslow was athletic director at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio, for four years.

Winslow, 56, played nine NFL seasons with the San Diego Chargers. He was a five-time All-Pro selection and caught 541 passes for 6,741 yards and 45 touchdowns during his career.
