MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Rob Alsop has been appointed to a restructured senior leadership position at West Virginia University.

The former chief of staff to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin will become WVU’s vice president for legal and governmental affairs and entrepreneurial engagement.

WVU President Gordon Gee announced Alsop’s appointment Friday. It is effective Oct. 27. William Hutchens is retiring as WVU’s top legal officer.

Alsop will oversee the university’s legal team and state and corporate relations staff. He’ll also work with university leaders on initiatives that promote joint entrepreneurial and research partnerships.

Alsop is currently a special counsel at the Morgantown law office of Bowles Rice. He was the governor’s chief of staff from 2010 to 2013.

He has resigned from the WVU Board of Governors, a position he was appointed to last year.
