UNCG Director of Athletics Kim Record announced a staff restructuring plan that will complement the updated athletic department strategic plan, which will be released fully prior to the first athletics events for the 2017-18 season.
“The student-athlete experience will continue to be the foundation for each decision made in UNCG athletics and this restructuring plan of the department administration coincides with that,” Record said. “These changes will help us to generate additional resources, connect consistently with former student-athletes, communicate our story effectively and maximize our opportunities for success.”
Stacy Kosciak has been promoted to Deputy Athletic Director and will oversee the day-to-day operation of the department. Kosciak will also oversee the men’s and women’s basketball programs on a day-to-day, administrative basis. Kosciak, a UNCG alumna, is in her 18th straight season working in the athletic department and her fifth straight year as an associate athletic director.
“Elevating Stacy to the Deputy AD role will allow me to execute our strategic objectives and spend more time out of the office, spending time with alumni and friends of the program,” Record said.
Craig Fink will add Chief Revenue Officer to his title of Senior Associate Athletic Director for Advancement. Fink will focus on increasing revenue through fundraising as the university considers a capital campaign. Fink is in his seventh year at UNCG and has guided the Spartan Club to unprecedented growth during his tenure, exceeding its yearly goal for sixth-straight seasons.
Tim George will be adding Chief Marketing Officer to his title of Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Operations. George will focus his day-to-day attention on increasing revenue through ticket and corporate sales, licensing and branding. George is in his eighth year on Record’s administration team and oversees the marketing, ticketing and corporate sales departments.
Matt McCollester will expand his role and update his title to Assistant Athletic Director for Strategic Communications. McCollester will now work more closely with the Spartan Club to share UNCG’s story, while also creating opportunities for strategic exposure through video capabilities and the Spartan Sports Link program. McCollester is in his sixth year with the program and oversees the communications and video departments.
Jay McCloy will be promoted to Assistant Athletic Director for Health and Sports Performance. McCloy’s role in the areas of mental health and nutrition will expand to meet the needs of Spartan student-athletes. McCloy is in his ninth year at UNCG and his second year overseeing the entire athletic training and strength and conditioning departments.
