Andy Geiger named Wisconsin-Milwaukee AD
Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Andy Geiger has been named the new athletic director at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Geiger will begin immediately. He was the athletic director at Ohio State from 1994-2005, leading one of the largest athletic departments in the country with 36 sports and nearly 1,000 student-athletes.
In addition, Geiger held the same position at Maryland (1990-1994), Stanford (1979-1990), University of Pennsylvania (1975-1979) and Brown University (1971-1975).
"The opportunity to be part of the leadership team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is ideal for me," Geiger said. "I am ready to apply the experience of 35 years as a Division I athletic director to the student- athletes, coaches and staff at UWM. I look forward eagerly to being part of the UWM community."
Geiger also said the opportunity was especially meaningful because he'll be working "just a few blocks from where my father was born and raised."
