July 10, 2014
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Providence College Associate Vice President and Athletics Director Bob Driscoll has been selected by members of the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (DI-AAA ADA) to serve as President for 2014-15.
“I am honored to have been selected to lead our Association this year and want to thank Denver Director of Athletics Peg Bradley-Doppes, for her leadership during the past year,” stated Driscoll. “I look forward to continuing to collaborate with our Executive Committee to serve our members and student-athletes who we represent.”
Driscoll is entering his 13th season as Providence College’s Athletics Director. During the 2013-14 academic year, the women’s cross country team claimed Providence College’s second NCAA Championship, the men’s basketball team won the 2014 BIG EAST Tournament title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament and the men’s hockey team advanced to the NCAA East Regional Final. Additionally, the men’s soccer team advanced to the BIG EAST Tournament title game and to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, while the men’s cross country team placed 16th at the NCAA Championship.
Under Driscoll, Providence College finished 71st (out of 297) in the 2013-14 Division I Learfield Sports Directors' Cup and placed second in the nation among Division I non-FBS/FCS institutions.
Driscoll joined Providence after over 14 years in athletic administration at the University of California, Berkeley that concluded with him serving as the Executive Associate Athletic Director. He has previously served on the NCAA Division I Management Council, the NCAA Ice Hockey Championship Committee (Chair 2010-11) and was the Chair of the BIG EAST Athletic Directors in 2011-12.
Now in its 14th year, the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association's mission is to enhance initiatives common to its Division I-AAA membership (the Division I institutions that do not sponsor football), in particular, aspects related to their flagship basketball programs. The Division I-AAA ADA is administered by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), which is in its 50th year.
