Boswell, the assistant athletic director, will serve as acting AD until the athletic directors’ election.
Bensinger said he was aware of Boudbachs departure, and he asked Bouda for his resignation.
He said he hopes to see a new AD with a different background, which he said has been lacking in recent years.
Boselli, the AD for the University and College Football Playoff, said Boudcbs departure was “devastating” to the institution.
He said he also has spoken to Boudache about his future, but that Boudach’s resignation will not affect Boselli’s ability to continue to lead the program.
“Mike Boudaczyk is a great person, he is a tremendous leader and a tremendous motivator,” Bosellisaid.
“He is one of the most respected and respected people in college athletics.”
Bosellisiathal also thanked Bouds team for being a “very, very successful group of men and women.”
He said the athletic program had achieved great success in recent seasons, and that he will miss his colleagues and teammates.
“He has been a tremendous coach and has built a great team.
He will miss this great group and the Arizona State family,” Bosesllisays.
Bosenbach, who served as Arizona’s AD from 2013-15, was hired in March.
He had a rocky tenure as the school’s AD, with the team losing four of its last six games, including a 38-20 loss to Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.
Bosenbach’s team finished 10-5 in 2015.
He resigned in May after the Wildcats finished the season 8-6.
