MACOMB, Ill. (WGEM) -- Matt Tanney is returning to where his college experience began and it's left Western Illinois without an athletic director.

Tanney was named the new AD at his alma mater, NCAA Division III Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, on Friday.

The new opportunity comes three years after Tanney was named interim athletic director at Western, following Tommy Bell's abrupt departure for Southern Illinois.

Less than a year later Tanney's interim tag was removed.

He spent almost six years in Macomb and called it a "privilege" to return to Wabash.

Western Illinois will conduct a national search to find Tanney's replacement.
