BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) California will name interim athletic director Mike Williams to the full-time job.

A person with knowledge of the plans said Monday that Chancellor Nicholas Dirks is expected to announce Williams' promotion later this week. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been finalized. The San Francisco Chronicle first reported the news.

Williams took over from Sandy Barbour in July and originally said he was not a candidate for the job. That changed once he was in the job and he proved himself to be a viable candidate.
