The Department of Athletics at the University of North Georgia has selected Lee Glenn as assistant athletic director for communications.
"The UNG Athletics Department is very fortunate to have Lee Glenn join our team," Director of Athletics Lindsay Reeves said. "Lee brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that will positively impact our athletic communications department immediately."
Glenn, a 15-year veteran of the athletic communications field, will oversee the promotion and external operations of the university's 13 NCAA Division II sports.
"I am honored to be joining the UNG athletics team," Glenn said. "North Georgia athletics have always been held in the highest regard, and I look forward to continuing to promote the university's athletic identity. My family and I are extremely excited about becoming part of the Nighthawk community."
In this role, Glenn will have oversight of the university's athletic communications department and staff and will manage promotion, marketing, image branding, and home game operations. He will also spearhead the department's branding transition to the new University of North Georgia Nighthawks brand.
Glenn has accrued years of experience in the athletic communications field, and has served as the assistant athletic director for communications at two NCAA Division III schools—Piedmont College in Demorest, Ga., and Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C. He was also honored as the Great South Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in two sports—men's basketball in 2011 and men's cross country in 2002.
Glenn has been very active in professional associations, completing two consecutive three-year terms as the independent representative on the NCAA Division III South Region Ranking/Advisory Committee and has served as the NCAA representative at numerous NCAA championship sites. He was also instrumental in developing and initiating the Georgia Basketball Coaches Association and served as vice-chairman on the association's executive committee.
Also, Glenn carries active administrative professional development memberships in both the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and the College Sports Information Directors of America.
