Belhaven Considers DIII Move

belhavenASC worked with President Roger Parrott and the Belhaven University senior administration to provide an analysis of the prospect for moving the Blazer athletic programs to either NCAA Division II or Division III. Following the ASC report and other institutional information, the University and its Board of Trustees began a process to move the athletic programs to NCAA Division III, which is more in line with their institutional goals and objectives.

Board Selects Patberg

chickfilaThe Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl has started a new initiative – the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Board of Advisors. Kurt Patberg who has served as an active member on the Team Selection Committee for the past ten years, has been invited to serve on the BOA. The college football bowl landscape is changing, and the leadership at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is gaining support in making sure that the bowl maintains its elite stature that we have worked so hard to achieve.

The Board of Advisors is a group of local Atlanta companies and business professionals working together with the goal of helping the bowl reconnect with Atlanta and maintaining its position as the College Football Capital. Also, with our move to the College Football Playoff Group, this Bowl has the opportunity for networking through the love of college football.

This board will play a big part in helping us achieve the goals of continued sellouts, along with other strategic bowl initiatives.

"By using their [ASC's] knowledge to get to our short list of candidates that fit what we sought in an athletic director, we easily spent half the amount of time that is normally required in a search like this.   Additionally, they enhanced the pool of by bringing several qualified candidates to the finalist list.  Showing that they know talent, two of the individuals that they sought out, and applied to our position, were hired by and are current NCAA Division II AD’s.  Our search finished with securing a quality hire.  If our institution ever needed to conduct a search for an athletic director, we would without question use the services of ASC."
