WELCOME LETTER A LETTER FROM HEAD COACH JOHN RODDICK Welcome to men’s tennis at the University of Oklahoma. As a program, I believe that we are in a position to challenge the Big 12 as well as the nation’s elite programs. I embrace the challenges each student-athlete faces and understand what it takes to compete at the highest levels of the game. It takes discipline, focus and hard work to become successful, not only in competition, but in the classroom as well. At Oklahoma, we are fortunate to be able toprovide the resources to become the best. Our facilities, athletically and academically, are second to none. Each student-athlete is given every opportunity to succeed, whether that is on or off the court. The mission statement of our athletics department states that we ‘Inspire champions today and

prepare leaders for tomorrow.’ I have never seen a place where that statement rings truer than at this prestigious institution. The University of Oklahoma boasts one of the top athletic programs in the country and we hold strong to the highest possible standards. The university and its fans demand success, which is why I am proud to call myself a Sooner. I look forward to a successful season and career as head coach at the University of Oklahoma. I know that the contribution of our student-athletes will add to the bright future of our program.

Gregg Wadley

The Gregg Wadley Indoor Tennis Pavilion opened its doors in spring 2009. The facility provides a climate-controlled practice and competition facility for Oklahoma Tennis. The 55,000-square-foot facility features six air-conditioned courts, competition quality lighting and surface, and 375 chair-back spectator seats. The facility also features scoreboards on the north and south sides and six video cameras for documenting practice and competition footage. Oklahoma’s indoor facility is one of the premier indoor facilities in the country and the only indoor tennis facility in the Big 12. The facility is located immediately east of the Headington Family Tennis Center, with entrances on both sides for fan and player convenience. The facility was made possible with donations from its namesake Gregg Wadley and his wife, Dr. Susan E. Brackett, Tim Headington, the Sarkeys Foundation and other donors, including former studentathletes. With the addition of the indoor facility, OU is now a top contender to host multiple tournaments and championships. Since the facility’s opening, Oklahoma has hosted three major tennis tournaments, including the 2009 Big 12 Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships

and the 2009 ITA Central Region Women’s Championships. OU hosted the Big 12 Championships in April 2009 for the second time in conference history. The tennis center drew a crowd of over 1,000 spectators throughout the tournament. During the championships, the Big 12 coaches raved about OU’s new indoor faciily and the great investment in Oklahoma tennis. “It’s definitely one of the best facilities in the country,” Nebraska women’s head coach Scott Jacobsen said. “The indoor facility that backs up to the outdoor is state-of-the-art. There aren’t a whole lot of comparable facilities that are as nice as the one here at the University of Oklahoma.” “It has been fantastic,” Baylor men’s head coach Matt Knoll said.“I’m really happy OU’s made such an investment in our sport. These facilities are just world class. We’re fortunate to have them leading the way in our conference.” With the facility, Oklahoma is a premeir site to host ITA tournaments, conference championships and NCAA regionals in the coming years.

HISTORY

BOOMER SOONER

The Headington Family Tennis Center is the home for Oklahoma men’s and women’s tennis. The facility features 12 outdoor courts, seating for fans, championship lighting and surface, a sound system, electronic scoreboards, and benches on every court. The facility also features the brand new Gregg Wadley Indoor Tennis Pavilion, directly east of the outdoor courts. The outdoor courts are split into four three-court quadrants for easy access and viewing. Additionally, each court features an electronic scoreboard for spectators. With the addition of the Gregg Wadley Indoor Pavilion, the tennis center as a whole houses 18 courts, locker rooms for both home teams and visitors, storage for trainers and equipment staff and indoor amenities for fans. The tennis facility improvements were part of the “Great Expectations – The Campaign for Sooner Sports” project that began in 1999. “Great Expectations - The Campaign for Sooner Sports,” a recently completed fund-raising effort, was about the continuation of a proud championship tradition. It was a five-year campaign launched with an eventual goal of $100 million, making possible an extraordinary era in new athletics facilities that has led to unprecedented athletic and academic success for OU student-athletes.

2010 MEN’S TENNIS

Among the accomplishments made possible by Great Expectations’ donors: an expanded, renovated and more beautiful football stadium; two completely new facilities for men’s and women’s basketball at Lloyd Noble Center; new or renovated facilities for baseball, softball, volleyball, wrestling, softball, tennis, soccer and track and field; new strength and conditioning and sports medicine centers and an indoor training center. The project shows the department’s dedication to all OU athletics across the board, including the men’s and women’s tennis programs. “Projects like this, while they might scream at you in terms of need, don’t always rise up to a level of getting people focused on getting a mission completed,” Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione said. “This project is really special because now we have state-of-the-art facilities indoor and outdoor. We are able to put the men’s and women’s tennis programs in a better position to be competitive. They certainly have been the most competitive that we have in the classroom and now we can help them grow and improve in the tennis program.” “We took a leap of faith with the outdoor courts and they have been fantastic in every way,” Castiglione said. “They have been highly appreciated and we always receive great reviews from the teams we play and the tournaments we have hosted. Now we have this indoor facility that I am absolutely certain will be one of the more respected places on a college campus in terms of intercollegiate tennis.”

“I am really proud of the way our guys played in the fall and I think it shows in the pre-season rankings,” said John Roddick. “They are going to have a tough task this season but they have the necessary skills to have a successful season.” SCHEDULE BREAKDOWN Oklahoma’s 2010 schedule is filled with ranked opponents. In fact, all 17 of OU’s opponents are ranked in the top 65, six in the top 25. The Sooners start the year in Palo Alto, Calif., for the first round of the National Team Indoors. OU’s first match pits them against San Diego State on Friday, Jan. 29. The following day OU will either face UNC Wilmington or traditional powerhouse Stanford. “Going out to Stanford is a great opportunity for us to start the year,” said Roddick. “I’m really thrilled about our home schedule in February. There are a lot of good teams coming to Norman. There are a lot of opportunities for us to get some highly ranked wins.”

HEAD COACH | First SEASON

John Roddick is a former professional tennis player and coach. Most recently he was director of Roddick Total Tennis, a high-performance boarding academy in San Antonio and Austin, Texas, which he operated from 2002-09. Also during that time, from 2006-08, he coached his brother, Andy, a former No. 1-ranked player in the world, on the ATP Tour. In 2006 and again in 2008, Roddick was the Team Captain for the United States’ World Team Cup squad. “There are a lot of positives at Oklahoma and I am excited about this opportunity,” Roddick said. “Winning is the culture here and I have a sense that our vision for the program is one and the same. I am committed to developing a

strong program that also stresses excellent academic performance.” Recent improvements at the tennis facilities, including the Headington Family Tennis Center and the Gregg Wadley Tennis pavilion, provide OU with $9.2 million in new or recently built facilities. “They’ve made a commitment on the facility side of the tennis program that is amazing. I won’t have to spend a lot of time convincing recruits that we’re worth a look. It’s a huge leg up.” Roddick’s Division I experience came as an assistant coach at Florida State for the 1999-00 school year and then at his

alma mater, Georgia, from 2000-02. Georgia dominated college tennis during that time and won the 2001 NCAA team title. The Bulldogs also reached the 2002 NCAA Team Final. He said balance will be the focus of his recruiting efforts. “Tennis is such an international sport and we’re going to have some international players. What I really want to have is a healthy mix of international and American players,” he said. “That approach is good for a tennis program because it introduces different styles to the team, and that will only make us stronger.” Born in Omaha, Neb., Roddick was a world-class player. He was a four-time All-American at Georgia from 1995-1998 and was named UGA Athlete of the Year in 1998. Also at Georgia, he was a three-time SEC All-Academic selection. A top U.S. junior, he was a member of the 1993 and 1994 National Teams. He was ranked as high as No. 6 internationally in singles and No. 3 internationally in doubles. Roddick’s academy was a hot bed for top talent. Marquee players at the academy included Nate Schnugg and Jamie Hunt, now at Roddick’s alma mater, Georgia; Kellen Damico who is at Texas; and Uladzimir Ignatic of Belarus, who was the 2007 French Open Junior champ. As a coach, Roddick has worked with top touring pros including his brother, Mardy Fish and Wayne Odesnik.

“I like to keep players calm and clear in their thinking,” Roddick said of his coaching style. “Every day is an opportunity to go out and work on something, and I am very big on the fundamentals. When players are disciplined in those areas their confidence grows because they’re not making silly mistakes any more.”

“Silviu is a temendous asset to our program,” Roddick continued.“He is a tireless worker and tremendous recruiter.”

“His passion for Sooner tennis is contagious and we are excited that he is on our staff,” Roddick said.

Tanasoiu’s excellent leadership on the court and his age will be a valuable asset to the Sooners’ coaching staff.

The former OU standout was a three-year letterwinner at Oklahoma while competing for the Sooners from 2003-2005.

For the last three and a half years, Tanasoiu has also been working with former OU standout Anda Perianu on the professional circuit.

Tanasiou graduated from Oklahoma in 2005 with a degree in psychology.

With Tanasoiu as her coach, Perianu reached the second round of the 2006 French Open and a ranking of 120 on the WTA tour.

The Romania native arrived at OU after competing at the University of Louisiana-Monroe for the 200102 season, finishing with the third highest winning percentage on the team. Once arriving at Oklahoma, Tanasoiu served as a reliable threat in singles and doubles competition. In both his junior and senior seasons, he produced more than 20 wins and helped Oklahoma upset

2008-09: Year In Review In 2009, Paul Lockwood’s Sooners had their fair share of ups and downs. At times during the season, the young but talented Sooners showed glimpses of being a top-ranked team. However, playing in the Big 12, one of the toughest conferences in American, proved too much for the Sooners, who ended the year ranked No. 47.

Another bright spot for the Sooners was OU’s lone senior, Sergey Avdeyev. He was named the Big 12 Player of the Week after an impressive showing against in-state rival Oklahoma State. Avdeyev ended the season ranked No. 9 in the Central Region, while Beleleu checked in at No. 13 in the Central Region by the ITA.

The Sooners’ strength came from a bevy of young players. In particular, junior Andrei Daescu, who proved to be a solid player for Oklahoma at the No. 1 position.

On the season, the pre-season No. 71st-ranked Sooners opened play in stunning fashion after shutting out UTPA and Oral Roberts, back-to-back.

Daescu teamed with sophomore David Pultr to earn All-Big 12 honors in doubles. The pair was also ranked No. 45 nationally in the ITA doubles ranking and No. 3 in the Central Region. Daescu and Pultr finished the season with a record of 14-2.

The Sooners had their biggest win of the season against No. 34 TCU. OU defeated the Horned Frogs, 5-2, inside the Gregg Wadley Tennis Pavilion.

Sophomore Ionut Beleleu was another young star for the Sooners. He earned Big 12 honors at the No. 4 position after posting a 5-1 Big 12 record.

• OU’s Campaign for Scholarships has allowed the university to more than double new scholarships for students in just four years.

• The OU Health Sciences Center in FY 2008 continued its impressive rate of sponsored research, training, and public service growth by achieving more than $141 million in federal, state, corporate and nonprofit or foundation grants and contracts.

The project replaced a divided highway through campus with seven tiered gardens featuring traditional OU arches at each end. The pedestrian walkway’s landmarks include an OU Seed Sower sculpture at the west end, a clock tower at the east end, and a 70-foot granite fountain in the center. • For the outdoor improvements to the Norman campus — gardens, fountains, sculptures, benches — the University of Oklahoma has won first place in the education category for Beautification and Landscaping in the statewide environmental competition. Gifts of over $3 million have permanently endowed OU’s gardens.

2010 MEN’S TENNIS

OKLAHOMA REMEMBERS GAUTT Prentice Gautt ushered in a new era for Oklahoma football when he landed a spot on the 1956 team. Former Sooner head coach Bud Wilkinson was pressured against giving Gautt a scholarship. A group of black doctors and pharmacists gave money for Gautt to attend the school. Within a year, Gautt was given a scholarship and the donated amounts were given to another black student. Gautt, considered Oklahoma’s best player in 1958, was a two-time All-Big Eight player and 1959 Orange Bowl MVP. During his senior year, Gautt was named to the academic All-America team and eventually earned master’s and doctorate degrees in psychology. The academic center for student-athletes at the University of Oklahoma was named in Gautt’s honor in 1999. A special assistant to the commissioner of the Big 12 Conference, Gautt passed away on March 17, 2005.

of academic success through several methods. Arriving at a college campus can be very intimidating for both freshmen and transfer students. Our program provides a learning specialists to help familiarize the studentathlete with the academic and social culture at OU, thus helping to ease the transition to the University setting for student-athletes. Step Three: Counseling Personal Career Counseling - Student-athletes receive caring, professional support from Dr. Gerald Gurney and his staff at all levels. This support may take several forms, including career choice, academic or personal decisions. Academic Counseling and Advisement - Six professional athletic academic counselors are present to help studentathletes through the educational process. Approximately one counselor per 100 student-athletes is available to assist the student-athletes with planning class schedules, choosing degree programs and setting personal and academic goals. Psychological Counseling and Sport Psychology (PROS) The Prentice Gautt Academic Center is staffed with a licensed Counseling Psychologist and several psychological counselors and interns to provide a wide array of counseling and performance enhancing services. Student-athletes may visit the staff to confidentially discuss anything impacting their academic, athletic or personal lives. OU’s national award-winning program has become a model for other programs to follow. Academic Monitoring - Course attendance and course performance are checked a minimum of four times per semester for each student-athlete participating in the intercollegiate athletic program. Personal Health and Nutritional Counseling - The personal health and nutritional needs of student-athletes are monitored by the OU Sports Medicine staff of physicians and certified athletic trainers. The Wagner Dining Center

makes every effort to accommodate the special dietary and nutritional requirements of OU student-athletes. The cafeteria serves all three meals with several healthy entrees to choose from. The menu is designed to meet the nutritional needs of every individual student-athlete by allowing each athlete to choose from a variety of options to accommodate the unique demands of his/her schedule. In addition, a program to promote substance abuse awareness requires student-athletes to enroll in a campus personal health course focusing on substance abuse, human sexuality, nutrition and stress management. Step Four: Faculty Relations Faculty Guest Program - The faculty guest program’s purpose is to enhance the athletic department’s relationship with the faculty and staff. Faculty members are selected to be guest coaches for the week in all sports throughout the academic year. During that time, the faculty guests are provided with a list of planned activities that are designed to give them an opportunity to experience various aspects of the athletic department’s operations and introduce them to studentathlete lifestyles and expectations. Step Five: Resident Life Sooner Housing Center - Student-athletes reside in a variety of University housing environments, including the Sooner Housing Center. The Sooner Housing Center, managed by Athletic Student Life staff, is located across the street from the Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. It provides a living environment that is conducive to the academic and personal development of student-athletes. The Sooner Housing Center was the winner of the 1998, 2003, 2005 and 2009 President’s Trophy for the outstanding housing center on the OU campus and was recognized for its contribution to academic excellence, innovative programming and campus diversity. The Sooner Housing Center was also selected as the President’s Trophy runner-up in 1997, 2000 and 2006.

Step Six: Life Skills, Academic Recognition, Graduation/Post Eligibility, Community Service and Student-Athlete Leadership Life Skills Program - OU is a member of the NCAA’s Life Skills Program and is dedicated to contributing to the growth and development of student-athletes through academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, community service and career development. The OU Athletics Department offers and maintains a strong commitment through comprehensive programs to fully develop the student-athletes’ academic and personal potential, while enjoying the highest levels of athletic competition. Academics Awards Program - The OU Athletic Student Life program places special emphasis upon recognition of outstanding academic performances by student-athletes. An awards banquet is held in the spring to recognize special award winners and scholar athletes who have achieved a 3.00 GPA or higher. Graduating studentathletes receive recognition prior to OU’s graduation ceremonies in May during a reception. Each is given an “O” ring, representing their athletic participation and graduation from The University of Oklahoma. All scholarship student-athletes who exhaust their eligibility within eight semesters may receive an additional year of financial aid within a six-year period. Student-Athlete Advisory Committee - Student-athlete leaders from each sport comprise the StudentAthlete Advisory Committee, which aims to improve communication with the athletic and University administration regarding student-athletes’ needs and concerns. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee developed a community outreach partnership with the Oklahoma Youth Center, a local residential facility for physically, mentally and sexually abused children. SAAC also designs programs that encourage excellence in academics and social responsibility and serve to represent student-athletes on campus-wide committees.

Baseball The 2009 Sooner baseball team advanced to the program’s fourth regional final in the last five years under head coach Sunny Golloway. OU received the nation’s No. 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament, a program first, and finished the campaign with a 43-20 mark, the second most wins since the Sooners won the 1994 National Championship. While OU’s 32nd appearance in the NCAA Tournament fell short, the Sooners had plenty to celebrate throughout the season as they finished second in the Big 12 standings (a half game behind Texas). Men’s Basketball If Jeff Capel or anyone else had lingering questions regarding Blake Griffin’s abilities heading into 2008-09, the sophomore forward answered them emphatically by leading the Sooners to a 30-6 record – their fifth 30-win season in history– and to within an eyelash of the Final Four (they lost to eventual national champion North Carolina in the Elite Eight). OU’s 13-3 record in Big 12 Conference play tied as its best in the 13-year history of the league, and a 25-1 start to the season resulted in a three-week No. 2 national ranking in February – the program’s highest perch in 19 years. All Griffin did to help OU’s cause was author one of the most impressive single seasons in recent college hoops memory and win every national player of the year honor.

Women’s Basketball Women’s basketball had one of its most successful seasons in history, culminating at the program’s second Final Four appearance in St. Louis in April 2009. Led by senior Courtney Paris, the first ever four-time AllAmerican designated by the Associated Press and U.S. Basketball Writers Association, the Sooners matched a program record with 32 wins, including a record 20-game winning streak, and earned their sixth Big 12 regularseason title -- the third for OU in four seasons.

Quarterback Sam Bradford became OU’s fifth Heisman Trophy winner and joined offensive guard Duke Robinson as consensus All-Americans. Oklahoma won 11 or more games for the eighth time in Bob Stoops’ 10 seasons.

Cross Country The women’s cross country program was represented at the NCAA Championships for the fifth time in the last six years as sophomore Kelly Waters advanced to the title meet in Terre Haute, Ind. Waters finished 93rd at the meet, 16th among sophomores and ninth among Big 12 runners. Waters advanced to the meet after garnering All-Region honors with a 10th-place finish at the NCAA Midwest Regional. Waters also grabbed all-conference honors by finishing fifth at the Big 12 Championships. Classmate Jessica Engel finished 18th at the conference meet. The men’s season was highlighted by a secondplace finish at the Arkansas/Missouri Southern dual.

Men’s Golf The OU men’s golf team recorded three top-five finishes during the season, including a win at the Macdonald Cup on Oct. 5 in New Haven, Conn. That title was OU’s first tournament victory since the 2006 Big 12 Championship. Oklahoma defeated 13 other squads and inclement weather in its eight-shot triumph for the tournament crown. It was the fourth tournament title for the Sooners in Jim Ragan’s final season at the helm. Ragan resigned in June and was replaced by Ryan Hybl, most recently an assistant coach for the Georgia Bulldogs.

A STORIED AND ACTIVE TRADITION OF ATHLETICS EXCELLENCE

The Sooner tradition isn’t something buried in the past. It inspires OU’s student-athletes to greater heights every season. In 2008-09, the Sooner football team competed in its sixth BCS bowl in just seven years and, in 2008, the men’s gymnastics team earned its fifth national title in seven seasons. In 2002, the Sooner men’s and women’s basketball teams carved their spot in history by advancing to the NCAA Final Four -- only the third time in NCAA history a school accomplished the feat with both teams in the same year. The OU women added another first in 2005-06, becoming the first team men’s or women’s, in Big 12 history to go 16-0 in league play. Even more remarkable, during the 2001-02 season, the OU football and men’s and women’s basketball teams combined for 74 wins -- the most ever for those three sports by a Division I school in a single season. Oklahoma went 11-2 in football, 31-5 in men’s basketball and 32-4 in women’s basketball. The University of Oklahoma now stands alone in college sports’ 30-30-10 club, created exclusively by OU. Oklahoma’s student-athletes continue to lead in the classroom and their actions in the community are exem-

plary. With the Great Expectations campaign, Oklahoma continues to build the finest facilities in the nation. Each day, it becomes more evident that the University of Oklahoma has become one of the finest comprehensive athletics program in the country. When OU studentathletes raise the trophy of another championship, the hands responsible for hoisting that trophy symbolize thousands of Sooners around the globe. The following represents a closer look at the tradition powering the Oklahoma Sooners: • Oklahoma was playing football before it was a state. It’s only one of two Division I football programs to win seven or more national championships. And OU is the only Division I football program ever to record 47 straight victories. • Oklahoma gymnastics great Bart Conner won two NCAA all-around crowns and led the Sooners to two NCAA titles in 1977 and 1978. A three-time Olympian (1976, ‘80, ‘84), Conner won two gold medals in 1984. He was instrumental in the foundation of the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. • Oklahoma defeated UCLA in the 2000 Women’s College World Series to capture the school’s first softball national championship. The Sooners won 66 games, broke 15 school records, had four All-Americans, the WCWS Most Outstanding Player, three WCWS all-tournament team

The University of Oklahoma has a long and storied history. The rich tradition has given birth to some of the most recognized pageantry in all of college athletics. Here is a look at the origin of some of the elements that create the wonderful atmosphere so unique to OU:

Boomer Sooner One of the most recognizable college fight songs in the country, Boomer Sooner immediately evokes enthusiasm from OU fans and sends chills down the spines of those who dare to oppose them.

Sooners College sports fans are hard-pressed to find a nickname that is as unique and as tied in to a state’s history as a Sooner. The University of Oklahoma is the only school known as Sooners and those who claim that they are Sooners say it with pride.

In 1905, Arthur M. Alden, a student in history and physiology whose father was a Norman jeweler, wrote the lyrics to the fight song, borrowing the tune from Yale University’s Boola Boola but improvising the words. A year later, an addition was made to it from North Carolina’s I’m a Tarheel Born and the two combined to form today’s university fight song. Though the tune was first made known by Yale, the everlasting success of Sooner squads has taken the melody of Boomer Sooner to national popularity.

The Oklahoma Territory opened with the Land Run of 1889. Settlers from across the globe, seeking free land, made their way to the prairies of the plains to stake their claim. One of the few rules to claiming a lot of land was that all participants were to start at the same time, on the boom of a cannon. All settlers who started then were labeled as “Boomers” and the ones who went early were called “Sooners.” OU athletic teams were called either Rough Riders or Boomers for 10 years before the current Sooner nickname emerged in 1908. The university actually derived its name from a pep club called “The Sooner Rooters.” The success of University of Oklahoma athletics teams over the years has made the nickname synonymous with winning.

Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, OK U! Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, OK U! I’m a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die, I’ll be Sooner dead Rah Oklahoma, Rah Oklahoma Rah Oklahoma, OK U!

SOMe OF THE MOST RECOGNIZED TRADITIONS IN COLLEGE ATHLETICS

2010 OKL AHOMA MEN’S TENNIS MEDIA GUIDE

Mascots The Sooner Schooner is a Conestoga, or covered wagon, reminiscent of the mode of travel used by pioneers who settled Oklahoma. The Schooner is powered by matching white ponies named Boomer and Sooner, and it ventures onto Owen Field in a triumphant victory ride after OU scores. Although the Schooner was introduced in 1964, it did not become the official mascot until 1980. The Schooner is well-recognized by college athletics fans across the country and makes regular appearances at university functions. During OU football and baseball games from 1915-1928, Mex the Dog wore a red sweater with a letter “O” on the side. Mex died of old age on April 30, 1928, and he was so popular among students and faculty that the university closed for his funeral and procession on May 2, 1928. In the fall of 2005, the OU Athletics Deparment introduced costumed mascots. The new characters will act as an extension of the Sooner Schooner and its horses to be enjoyed by fans -- especially children -- at all OU athletics contests. The costumes feature traditional collegiate gear as part of their regular uniform, but will don team uniforms for football and men’s and women’s basketball. They were voted “Most Collegiate” by the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA).

HISTORY

Crimson and Cream In the fall of 1895, Miss May Overstreet, the only woman on the faculty, was asked to chair a committee to select the colors of the university. The committee decided the colors should be crimson and cream and an elaborate display of the colors was draped above a platform before the student body. The student body approved with great enthusiasm and immediately pennants, banners, badges and decorations of every description appeared on the streets, in the windows, at chapel, in classrooms, and all public places; however, local merchants could not supply the demand. Even though the school colors have evolved to red and white over the years, you can ask any self-respecting Sooner what the colors are and they will proudly announce “Crimson and Cream.” On gamedays, a sea of crimson rolls through OU’s home venues and all Sooners are urged to wear the official colors to show the rest of the country what school spirit and Sooner Pride is all about.

Pride of Oklahoma The Pride of Oklahoma Marching Band has been supporting Sooner Spirit for more than a century. Unlike many other college bands, which began as military drill units, the Pride of Oklahoma had its beginnings as a pep band. In the early years of the 1900s, both townspeople of Norman and students of OU participated in a band that played for football games. Professor John Merrill started the first band in 1901, which was composed mostly of townspeople and disbanded after each football season. Lloyd Curtis, a cornetist, founded the first continuous student band in 1904. Today, the 300-member Pride of Oklahoma has members representing virtually every college and major on campus. The Pride of Oklahoma stands for excellence in musicianship, academics, school spirit, and commitment to our role in the surrounding community. Boomer Sooner rings out at the end of each rehearsal, and that song is the defining element of the University of Oklahoma. Maybe that is why Sooner fans love the band so much. Not much can compare to the first “go-go” at a football game when the Pride of Oklahoma marches the interlocking OU down the field playing Boomer Sooner.

OU Chant The OU Chant is a loyalty song that is sung before every home football game, before and after every men’s and women’s basketball games and at the end of many athletic and university functions. Every fan who wears the official colors, each current student and student-athlete and all OU alumni are encouraged to stand and raise one finger in the air during the playing of the Chant -- a symbolic gesture that shows those who do not know what it means to be a Sooner, the greatness of the university and the unity between all Sooners. The Chant was written in 1936 by Jessie Lone Clarkson Gilkey, who directed the OU girl’s glee club from 1936 to 1938 and was voted Outstanding Faculty Woman in 1937. O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A Our chant rolls on and on! Thousands strong Join heart and song In alma mater’s praise Of campus beautiful by day and night Of colors proudly gleaming Red and White ‘Neath a western sky OU’s chant will never die.

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY THAT SUPPORTS OU

The Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) is a committee made up of student-athletes from all 21 intercollegiate athletic teams at the University of Oklahoma. The group coordinates community service programs for the Sooners each month. “Giving back is something that benefits us as much as those we’re helping,” says OU head softball coach Patty Gasso.“It brings us back to reality and makes us realize that there is more to life than collegiate softball. I feel it’s our duty to help out because of the role we’re in as a Division I softball program.” The University of Oklahoma men’s golf program has held an annual Clubs for Kids event in early May at the Lakeview Golf Course in Ardmore, Okla. Providing clubs and instruction, the event allows more than 1,000 southeastern Oklahoma youth an opportunity to interact with the OU golf team and coaches.

Oklahoma women’s basketball teams have been extremely active in the community since head coach Sherri Coale’s arrival in 1996. In addition to projects with the United Way, Coaches vs. Cancer, Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity and the Children’s Miracle Network, Coale implemented the Sooner Big Sis Program which places women’s basketball players at elementary schools in Norman to serve as mentors and teachers’ aides. “I want our student-athletes to learn through their experience here,” says Coale,“how important it is to volunteer to be a part of whatever community they decide to reside in when their playing days are over.” Oklahoma’s student-athletes recognize that wearing the Crimson and Cream means representing a popular sports program and themselves as individuals. They are encouraged to respond to a public that adores them, while learning important lessons about making a positive impact in the lives of others and in the community in which they live. Community service events for OU student-athletes from the past year included: • Women’s basketball players and coaches visited the Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City and participated

ROBIN SIEGFRIED & FAMILY STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COMPLEX

Evaluation, goal-oriented programs, supervision and state-of-the-art facilities help Oklahoma athletes become bigger, faster, stronger and more flexible. The Robin Siegfried & Family Strength and Conditioning Complex, located in the Barry Switzer Center, has 13,000 square feet to facilitate the intensive training of OU athletes. An additional facility, the Roy Williams Strength Training Facility, is available for workouts inside the Everest Training Center. The former Sooner football AllAmerican and Dallas Cowboy made the center possible through a gift to the University. Jerry Schmidt, director of sports enhancement, says the complex is a state-of-the-art facility where athletes work closely with six full-time staff members.“Oklahoma recognizes the importance of conditioning,” says Schmidt.“This facility is reflective of that commitment.” The objective of the strength and conditioning program is to ensure each student-athlete in every sport is provided with a sound in-season and off-season program. This program of activity includes strength,

conditioning, flexibility and nutrition. A strength and conditioning coordinator for each sport is provided to assist athletes in reaching the highest possible training levels.

conditioning is what it takes to be a Sooner athlete. Running, lifting and good nutrition must be kept in a balance. All these components must be in place for an athlete to compete at the highest level.”

The OU strength and conditioning staff takes great pride in providing a very intensive program that helps maintain greater overall body strength and conditioning levels during the season. By maintaining strength in the muscles and connective tissues throughout the season, the potential for injuries decreases.

Located at the south end of the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, the Barry Switzer Center houses administrative offices, the 9,000-square-foot football locker room, 6,500-square-foot the equipment room, the 10,000-square-foot Henry J.

The off-season program is also extremely intensive. Speed, strength, power, agility, fundamentals and nutrition are addressed. The OU staff is committed to full compliance with NCAA rules concerning time allocation for student-athletes and voluntary workouts during off-season periods. The staff’s interaction with the nutritional consultants on campus is essential. The staff maintains an open channel of communication with the dining staff at the Wagner Dining Center. This interaction enables the strength and conditioning staff to ensure that OU athletes receive a winning edge with a sound nutrition program. “Our goal is to get the student-athletes in their best condition,” says Schmidt.“That condition will give Oklahoma an edge at the end of a game.

Henry J. Freede, M.D., Sports Medicine Facility The Oklahoma Athletics Department feels a strong responsibility to help its athletes reach and maintain their optimum health and achieve conditioning goals. For this reason, OU has developed excellent training and conditioning programs to lessen the possibility of injuries. However, should injuries occur, the department is committed to a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Complete athletically-related medical services are provided to Oklahoma student-athletes by team physicians and OU’s certified athletic trainers. The University of Oklahoma obtains the services of the best medical consultants available. The base of operation for the Sooners’ medical care is the state-of-the-art Henry J. Freede, M.D. Sports Medicine Center in the Barry Switzer Center. Head athletic trainer Scott Anderson says the addition to the Barry Switzer Center has allowed the university to upgrade to a new edition of rehabilitation equipment that can best benefit the student-athletes.

From simple therobands to taping tables, the facility offers everything a school can have or hope to have. The Sooner training room is equipped to perform isokinetic joint evaluation for preventive medicine and for postinjury rehabilitation.

“Sports medicine is a team effort,” says Anderson.“The stated goal of athletic training at Oklahoma is, first of all, care for the student-athletes, thereby granting our sports a competitive advantage and ultimately greater esteem for the entire program.

The therapy room is supplied with the latest modalities on the market.

“To that end we are blessed with a full complement of self-sacrificing medical professionals working on a regular basis with our athletic training staff.”

“The addition of space is the greatest benefit,” says Anderson.“This space allows for dedicated rehabilitation and consultation to the athletes. An option with the facility is the water rehabilitation area. The athlete stands in a pool of water that is adjusted to his or her own physical needs. Cameras are then placed where physicians can monitor the progress made by the athlete on his or her road to recovery.” A total team effort is the key to OU’s efficiency in preventing, treating and rehabilitating injuries sustained by student-athletes. These measures keep Sooner athletes at their highest level of performance as they compete for championships.

With one of the greatest winning traditions in intercollegiate athletics, the University of Oklahoma, its players, coaches and fans understand the meaning of “Great Expectations.” OU hopes for and expects great things from its athletics teams -- and the athletes and coaches expect the same from themselves. Time and time again, the Sooners have delivered on this expectation: 26 national championships, more than 200 conference titles and more than 1,000 All-Americans. The University of Oklahoma’s goal is to provide first-class facilities and resources for all the programs and endeavors sponsored by the institution. OU Athletics captures so much attention and interest that it requires the help and support of all Sooners to continue the tradition that all have enjoyed. With that in mind, OU launched “Great Expectations... The Campaign for Sooner Sports” in 1999.

Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium The $75 million expansion and renovation of OU’s football stadium, completed in 2004, transformed a towering concrete structure into a beautiful facility featuring the brick and cast stone that characterize OU’s historic buildings. The expansion added 8,000 seats, including 56 suites, on the east side. At the same time, the press box was remodeled and outfitted with several state-ofthe-art features. This historical facility is the largest sports arena in the state, and following its recent expansion, now ranks among the 15 largest on-campus facilities in the nation.

“Great Expectations - The Campaign for Sooner Sports,” a recently completed fund-raising effort, was about the continuation of a proud championship tradition. It was a five-year campaign launched with an eventual goal of $100 million, making possible an extraordinary era in new athletics facilities that has led to unprecedented athletic and academic success for OU student-athletes.

Everest Training Center Considered one of the premier indoor facilities in the country, the Everest Training Center is a 74,000-squarefoot center that includes a full-size playing field, simulated stadium lighting, a complete scoreboard with play clocks, LED 40-yard timing devices and a ceiling that hangs 65 feet above the playing surface to allow for all kicking and throwing drills.

Softball Hitting Facility The OU softball team broke ground on an indoor hitting facility in July 2008 was completed prior to the 2009 season. In 2002, the Robert E. Young and Family Softball Locker Room was added to the Softball Complex, giving the team a spacious and comfortable gathering place for preparation and relaxation. In 2003, the softball field was named in honor of retired

Howard McCasland Field House The Field House is one of OU’s most historic buildings. Many OU alumni fondly recall the field house as the home of OU’s basketball program, which it was until Lloyd Noble Center opened in 1975. In 2005, the Field House underwent a $6 million facelift that included a complete interior renovation comprised of a resanded and repainted floor with four efficient practice courts and chair-back

seating that offers fans more comfort. In addition, the entire facility was repainted and improvements were made to the HVAC system, sound system, lighting and scoreboards. The Sooners have also enjoyed renovations done to the training room as well as an upgrade to both the volleyball and wrestling locker rooms. Wrestling Practice Facility Connected to the McCasland Field House, the Athletics Department launched a $2.4 million project in 2008. The bulk of the construction will include a $1.3 million addition to the Port Robertson Wrestling Center. The facility serves as the practice venue for the Sooner wrestling team. Mary Jane Noble Women’s Basketball Center In 1975, the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation of Ardmore made the first million-dollar gift in OU history with its contribution to OU’s campaign to build a multipurpose arena. In 1999, the foundation made another gift to support the renovation of the original center, adding first-class matching facilities for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. The Lloyd Noble Center addition includes two new full-sized practice courts for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Bob and Ann Coleman Men’s Basketball Center The nearly 63,000-square-feet Lloyd Noble Center addition offers a matched set of men’s and women’s facilities, including full-sized practice courts, new team and coaches’ locker rooms, training rooms and steam/ spa/sauna rooms. Office facilities and conference rooms provide views of the practice courts as special features and a shared weight training facility was created. The Kerr-McGee Courtside Club gives fans a venue for special events.

A UNIVERSITY TOWN WITH A CHAMPIONSHIP SPIRIT

Norman is an ever-changing city of nearly 100,000 residents. Located in the heart of the state, it has grown to become the third largest city in Oklahoma. Despite its continuous growth, it has maintained the spirit and serenity of a small close-knit community. Since the Oklahoma landrush of 1889, Norman has grown into a popular and smart city. The spirit of Norman and its citizens is unwavering and uncompromising. While other towns were clamoring to become the state capital, Norman residents desired to have the first state university. When the first OU president got off the train and saw a prairie, he saw opportunity. As home to the state’s premier educational institution, Norman boasts an excellent quality of life and is a city that thrives on and celebrates the diversity of its community. Legendary University of Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer called Norman “a university town with a championship spirit.” Norman continually exhibits its love for sports by hosting numerous local and national athletic events.

In the last five years alone, Norman has served as host of the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championship, an NCAA men’s golf regional, NCAA softball regionals, NCAA men’s and women’s gymnastics regionals, NCAA women’s tennis regionals, NCAA track and field regional and the NCAA women’s basketball regionals. In addition, the Big 12 Conference Men’s and Women’s Tennis, Track and Field, Wrestling, Women’s Golf, and Women’s Gymnastics Championships were held in Norman. Cultural activities are unlimited in Norman, making it the ideal backdrop for the University of Oklahoma. As home to people of all ethnic and educational backgrounds, the city has something to offer everyone. Norman is home to a variety of enriching events and attractions, including the Sooner Theater, which hosts a series of entertaining theatrical performances produced by locally-based talent and touring companies. The city also showcases local and regional artists in its annual May Fair. In addition, through the university’s School of Drama, School of Dance and the School of Music, stage productions are offered year round. The Medieval Fair has become a springtime tradition in Norman as people from around the country converge on the city for one weekend each April to partake in a fascinating look back in time.

Oklahoma City Oklahoma City, the capital of Oklahoma, is located just 18 miles from the Norman campus. It was the first city settled in the Land Run of 1889 because of its position as the center of the state. It is because of this central location that Oklahoma City has become known as the home of America’s Western heritage. Whether adventure, history, culture or sports, Oklahoma City offers a variety of attractions and activities different from any other place in the country. Oklahoma City was born on the afternoon of April 22, 1889, when the central portion of what is now Oklahoma was opened to settlement by presidential proclamation. Thousands crossed the borders of “unassigned lands” at the sound of gunfire at high noon. Never before or since has such a “run” occurred anywhere on the earth. By the time the dust had settled on that historic day, many people had staked their claim at “Oklahoma Station,” an area which was destined to become Oklahoma City, a leading city in America. In 1911, Oklahoma City officially became the capital after a statewide election moved the state seal from Guthrie. Oklahoma City has become a haven for exciting sports action. It is home of an NBA team, two semi-professional sports teams and the host of the NCAA Women College Softball World Series and Big 12 Softball Championship. The Oklahoma RedHawks, 1996 American Association champions (then named the Oklahoma City 89ers), are the Triple-A baseball affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The team plays in the 13,066-seat AT&T Bricktown Ballpark,

one of the plushest venues in all of minor league sports. The ballpark served as host to a 2004 NCAA baseball regional and the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 208 Big 12 Baseball Championships. Hockey mania runs rampant with the recent success of the Central Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Blazers. The Blazers won the CHL crown in 1996 and are yearly one of the league’s best teams. In addition, the city has hosted numerous PGA and Senior PGA Tour events. Tulsa Tulsa, the state’s second largest city, is located 100 miles to the northeast of Norman in the heart of Oklahoma’s Green Country. Ask people to describe Tulsa, and you’ll likely get many different answers. It was a city forever changed by the discovery of oil in 1901. It is home to art deco treasures and nationally renowned museums. Its African-American heritage left its mark, in both the business and music worlds. And it’s a city of nostalgia and special memories for countless Americans due to its location on historic Route 66. Tulsa is a cosmopolitan town that appeals to both young families and retirees. National touring exhibitions can be seen at the Philbrook Museum of Art, which was recently featured on the television program America’s Castles. For great western art, check out the Gilcrease Museum, and music legends are commemorated at Oklahoma’s Jazz Hall of Fame. Other unique attractions worth a stop include the Elsing Museum, Ida Dennie Willis Museum of Miniatures, Dolls & Toys, Tulsa Air and Space Center and the Fenster Museum of Jewish Art.

David L. Boren, who has served Oklahoma as governor and U.S. senator, became the thirteenth president of the University of Oklahoma in November 1994. He is the first person in state history to have served in all three positions. Boren is widely respected for his academic credentials, his longtime support of education, and for his distinguished political career as a reformer of the American political system. A graduate of Yale University in 1963, Boren majored in American history, graduated in the top one percent of his class and was elected Phi Beta Kappa. He was selected as a Rhodes Scholar and earned a master’s degree in politics, philosophy and economics from Oxford University, England, in 1965. In 1968, he received a law degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, where he was on the Law Review, elected to the Order of the Coif, and won the Bledsoe Prize as the outstanding graduate by a vote of the faculty. As Oklahoma’s governor from 1974 through 1978, Boren promoted key educational initiatives that have had an enduring impact on Oklahoma. Established during his tenure were the Oklahoma Arts Institute, the Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program, and the Oklahoma Physicians Manpower Training Program, which provides scholarships for medical students and medical personnel who commit to practice in underserved rural areas. Also, the first state funding for Gifted and Talented classes was provided in 1976 and, from 1976 through 1978, Oklahoma ranked first among all states in the percentage increases of funding for higher education. One of Boren’s most far-reaching projects in promoting quality education at all levels is the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, which he founded in 1985. The foundation recognizes outstanding public school students and teachers and helps establish private local foundations to help give academic endowment grants to local public schools. As a senator, he was the author of the National Security Education Act in 1992, which provides scholarships for study abroad and for learning additional languages, as well as legislation to restore the tax deductibility of gifts of appreciated property to universities in 1993. Boren, also a former state legislator, spent nearly three decades in elective politics before becoming the president of the University of Oklahoma. Boren was the youngest governor in the nation when he served from 1974 to 1978. Known as a reformer, Boren campaigned with a broom as his symbol. During his term, he instituted many progressive programs, including conflict-ofinterest rules, campaign-financing disclosure, stronger open meeting laws for public bodies, more competitive bidding on state government contracts, and reform of the state’s prison system, including expanded education programs for first-time offenders and the largest expansion of the work-release program in state history. During his time in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 1994, Boren served on the Senate Finance and Agriculture Committees and was the longest-serving chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. From his days as a state legislator and governor of Oklahoma to Washington, Boren carried a commitment to reform, leading numerous efforts to make government work better for American citizens. As chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, he strengthened oversight of secret government programs and reformed the procedures for Presidential notice of such programs to Congress.

80

For more than 10 years, he led the fight for congressional campaign finance reform and for legislation discouraging administration and congressional staff from cashing in on government experience and contacts by becoming lobbyists. In addition, he introduced legislation seeking to limit gifts and travel subsidies that government workers, including members of Congress, can receive from lobbyists. Boren also chaired the special 1992-93 Joint Committee on the Organization of Congress, which produced proposals to make Congress more efficient and responsive by streamlining congressional bureaucracy, reducing staff sizes and reforming procedures to end legislative gridlock.

educational experience to match their potential. In 1995, Boren launched the “Reach for Excellence” fundraising campaign with a five-year goal of $200 million, which was twice as large as any fundraising drive in Oklahoma history. The drive exceeded $500 million, raising OU into the top 15 public universities in the United States in private endowment per capita. Since 1994, endowed professorships have more than quadrupled and the OU donor base has grown from 18,000 to more than 107,000 friends and alumni. During the first 10 years of Boren’s tenure over $1 billion in private gifts were donated to the university.

Boren left the U.S. Senate in 1994 with an approval rating of 9l percent after being reelected with 83 percent of the vote in 1990, the highest percentage in the nation in a U.S. Senate contest in that election year.

Above all, the Boren years have been marked by an emphasis on putting students first. There is not a university president in the country that is more committed to students as his number one priority. He teaches a freshman-level course in political science each semester and is one of the few presidents of major universities to teach.

Boren served from 1988 to 1997 as a member of the Yale University Board of Trustees. His university experience also includes four years on the faculty of Oklahoma Baptist University, where he was chairman of the Department of Political Science and chairman of the Division of Social Sciences. In 1993, the American Association of University Professors presented Boren with the Henry Yost Award as Education Advocate of the Year. In April 2004, Boren received the Mory’s Cup from the Mory’s Association at Yale University. In making the presentation to Boren it was noted that he was the first Yale graduate in the university’s history extending over three centuries to have served as a Governor, U.S. Senator and President of a major university.

Boren is married to Molly Shi Boren, a former judge and English teacher. Mrs. Boren is President Emeritus of the Oklahoma Arts Institute, which provides education programs in nine arts disciplines for high school students from across the state who are gifted in the arts. Molly Boren has two degrees from the University of Oklahoma, a master’s degree in English and a Juris Doctorate from the OU College of Law. A native of Seminole, Boren has two children, Carrie Christine Boren, an Episcopal minister, and David Daniel Boren, a member of the United States Congress from Oklahoma. Devoting much of his life to public service, Boren drew from the example of his parents, the late Congressman Lyle H. Boren and Christine Boren.

Under Boren’s leadership, the University of Oklahoma has developed and emerged as a “pacesetter university in American public higher education,” with 20 major new programs initiated since his inauguration. They include establishment of the Honors College, the Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West, a new expository writing program for freshmen modeled on the program at Harvard, an interdisciplinary religious studies program, the Artist-in-Residence Program, the International Programs Center, and the Faculty-in-Residence Program putting faculty family apartments in student residence halls. The Retired Professors Program has been started, bringing 50 retired full professors back to the University to teach freshmen. The number of new facilities started or completed on the campus during the Boren years has matched the explosion in new programs. Since 1994, almost $1 billion in construction projects have been completed or are under way on OU’s three campuses. Among the largest of the recent projects are the $18.7 million renovation and expansion of historic Holmberg Hall, home of music and dance programs; the $67 million National Weather Center; the $19 million addition to the Michael F. Price College of Business; the $17 million Gaylord Hall for journalism and mass communication; the $27 million Stephenson Research and Technology Center; and the $83.5 million stadium project. The Health Sciences Center has a new Student Union, and the new $24 million Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center. Presidential Travel Scholarships, students from 111 countries on campus, more reciprocal international exchange agreements than any other university and the new International Programs Center are all making OU more international.

HISTORY

2010 MEN’S TENNIS

director of athletics Joe Castiglione Principle Centered Leader …Visionary ... Passionate Advocate for Student-Athletes ... Establishes Standards of Excellence & Cultural Values ... Builder of Championship Programs The success of the University of Oklahoma Athletics Department is known throughout the world of intercollegiate athletics. The last decade may stand as one of the most successful in school history and leading that effort is Joe Castiglione, the Sooner AD since 1998. Castiglione’s Sooner team has worked to create a place where competitive dreams come true and academic goals are reached with regularity. Excellence is the norm at OU, and the Sooners’ sports programs, student-athletes, coaches and staff are committed to that standard. For Castiglione, though, it’s not just about the championships and trophies. The victories that he celebrates with his Sooners include graduation rates that continue to climb, record-setting grade point averages and academic honors. The true measure of achievement for Castiglione and, by extension, the department’s coaches and staff, is measured in the success of the student-athletes in relation to the department’s mission statement “Inspiring champions today … Preparing leaders for tomorrow” With the support of OU President David L. Boren and OU’s sevenmember Board of Regents, Castiglione has gone about creating a climate that creates lofty goals, high standards and a commitment to ethical behavior that is second to none. Since arriving at OU in 1998 after an outstanding career at Missouri, Castiglione has seen the Sooners finish in the top 30 of the Learfield Director’s Cup in nine of the last 11 years. Through his insistence that daily and long-term decisions be made in a financially responsible manner, the department has closed the books in the black in each of the last 11 years. In 2009, the department increased its direct support of the academic mission of the University by increasing its annual commitment to $4 million dollars. Through direct and indirect support, OU Athletics, under Castiglione’s leadership, provides more than $7 million to OU Academics.

The 11th director of athletics in University of Oklahoma history, Castiglione is quick to give full credit to the student-athletes and coaches, the staff, OU President David L. Boren, the OU Board of Regents, the donors and the fans for the success experienced during his tenure. It was that commitment to a team approach emphasis that was one of the many qualities that that the search committee recognized when they recommended Castiglione to university administration in 1998. In recognition of the performance of OU’s teams on the field and in the classroom, of the fiscal stability created during his tenure, the dramatic increases in donor giving, facility construction and renovations, and the cutting-edge programs that the department has begun during his tenure, Castiglione was named Athletic Director of the Year in May 2009 by the Sports Business Journal. That award was one of several earned by Castiglione and the department. The 2007 PRISM Award winner, presented by the School of Sports Management at the University of Massachusetts, OU was just the second Division I winner and all of the programs recognized by the selection panel were started under Castiglione’s leadership with the full support of university administration. His peers have honored him for the department’s achievements as well. In October 2004, the Bobby Dodd Foundation named him Athletics Director of the Year. In 2003, he was inducted into the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators Hall of Fame. In June 2001, he received the General Robert R. Neyland Athletic Director Award for lifetime achievement from the AllAmerican Football Foundation. The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) named him Central Region AD of the Year in 2000. The achievement that may bring him the most pride, though, came in May 2007 when he completed his master’s of education degree from OU. To understand the need for education and lifelong learning, OU’s student-athletes just have to look at their AD who started and completed his master’s degree while running the department and maintaining his priorities to his family. He quickly put his

experience to use as an adjunct professor in the College of Education, teaching a graduate class in Marketing & Development. In his tenure, OU has celebrated seven national team championships and more than 40 conference team titles; record numbers of graduating student-athletes and record-setting grade point averages for Sooner teams; dramatically increased donor giving; huge increases in ticket sales for all sports; major facility improvements, and development and construction of new facilities. Castiglione was instrumental in the athletics department’s major campaign, Great Expectations: The Campaign For Sooner Sports. The campaign ended in November of 2003 with more than $125 million raised. The figure has grown to almost $200 million since then as funds continue to be raised for facility improvements and scholarship endowments. The largest fund-raising effort in OU athletics history includes projects that impact each of OU’s nearly 500 student-athletes and has become a national model for intercollegiate athletics. Hired on April 30, 1998, Castiglione joined the Sooner family after serving as athletics director at Missouri. In his 17-year career with the Tigers, Castiglione, who was named director of athletics at Missouri on Dec. 15, 1993, was credited with rebuilding sports programs, hiring outstanding coaches, implementing an innovative master plan for facilities, inspiring record-setting increases in fund-raising and balancing the budget in each of his five years as athletics director. A 1979 Maryland graduate, Castiglione received the University’s Distinguished Alumnus Award in April 2007. He began his career as the sports promotions director at Rice. He then worked a year as director of athletic fund-raising at Georgetown before being hired in 1981 at Missouri as director of communications and marketing. His commitment to the success of student-athletes has gone beyond the Norman campus and he has served at national and conference level. He chairs the NCAA’s Football Academic Progress Rate (APR) Working Group and is currently serving on the Gatorade Collegiate Advisory Board and the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame Board of Directors. He served two terms as chair of the Big 12 Board of Athletics Directors and is a past president of both the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association and NACDA. He served a four-year term on the NCAA Championship/Competition Cabinet and the NCAA Baseball Committee and is a past member of the NCAA Football Special Events Certification Committee. He recently served on the NCAA Diversity Leadership Strategic Planning Committee and the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Discussion Group. A member of the Phi Delta Theta Foundation Board of Trustees, he is a highly requested speaker at annual conventions and continuing education institutes. A native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Castiglione is married to the former Kristen Bartel, a 1990 graduate of the University of Missouri. They are the parents of two sons, Joseph Robert, Jr. and Jonathan Edmund.
