Drew Brown was named athletic director of Mount St. Mary College in Newburgh and will assume his new role on July 6, the college announced.
Brown comes to Mount St. Mary from Pace University, where he served as associate athletic director for external affairs since 2015. He also served in administrative roles at Mercy College, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Fairfield University and St. Peter’s University.
“I am thrilled and honored to be chosen as the next Director of Athletics at Mount Saint Mary College. I want to thank Dr. Adsit, Vice President Elaine O’Grady, the search committee, the athletics staff and the student-athletes for their confidence in me and for this tremendous opportunity. From the start, I have felt that the family environment and the mission rooted in service and leadership at the Mount was something very special and it will be a privilege to be a part of it,” said Brown in a release from the college.
“Mount Saint Mary College has such a great history and tradition of athletics achievement in competition, in the classroom, and in the community, and in preparing students for life after college. I look forward to working together with our talented coaches and staff to continue to build on the rich experience for Knight student-athletes that Jessica Mushel, her team and all who have come before have developed, and to serving the entire Mount Saint Mary family.”
Brown will oversee the 19 varsity sports at Mount St. Mary, which is an NCAA Division III program that competes in the Skyline Conference.
