Northern Illinois says administrator Christian Spears will serve as acting athletic director.

The school said in a statement that the move will take effect April 15. NIU is looking to replace Jeff Compher, who is leaving after five years for a similar job at East Carolina.

Spears arrived at Northern Illinois from Southern Illinois in April 2009 and was promoted from senior associate athletics director to deputy director of athletics in August. He has overseen academic support services, compliance, life skills, strength and conditioning, football operations and equipment.
