ERIC ZIADY ATHLETICS DIRECTOR CAREER RESUME/HIGHLIGHTS 1988 Providence College 1989 Northeastern University 1989-90 Northeastern University 1991-94 Northeastern University 1994 Northeastern University 1994-98 Northeastern University 1998-04 Boston College 2004-10 Boston College 2010-12 Boston College 2012-Pres. University of Delaware

Bachelor’s Degree - Political Science Master’s Degree - Sports Management Graduate Assistant - Athletics Business Manager - Athletics Master’s Degree - Business Administration Asst. Director of Athletics - Finance & Administration Asst. Director of Athletics Associate Director of Athletics - Business Operations Senior Associate Director of Athletics Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Services

Eric Ziady, who spent the previous 23 years working in the highest levels of collegiate athletics administration in the Boston area, was named the new Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Services at the University of Delaware on Oct. 10, 2012. Ziady (pronounced “zee-aidy”), 47, a native of Andover, Mass., becomes just the fifth Director of Athletics at Delaware since 1940. He replaces Bernard Muir, who left UD in July, 2012 after three years at the helm to become Director of Athletics at Stanford University. “We’re so glad that Eric is joining UD as our new athletic director,” said UD President Patrick Harker in announcing Ziady’s hiring. “He’s wholly committed to students’ academic and athletic success. He’s an incredibly strong financial administrator and a proven revenue-generator. He understands the conference landscape, and can help us navigate through the issues of conference alignment. And he absolutely shares our most fundamental goal: to educate student-athletes who will lead in competition, in the classroom and in the community.” Ziady arrives at Delaware after spending the previous 14 years at Boston College - most recently as senior associate athletics director for business operations - and nine years before that at Delaware’s current Colonial Athletic Association and former America East conference rival Northeastern University. He served as assistant director of athletics at Northeastern during his final four years in Brookline. He heads a University of Delaware athletics and recreation services department that sponsors 21 intercollegiate sports, including 13 women’s sports. Delaware captured three Colonial Athletic Association team titles a year ago, had three teams post first round wins in the NCAA Tournament, and finished second among CAA schools in the NCAA Division I National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Directors’ Cup standings. A vibrant recreation services department sponsors over 30 club sports and over 30 intramural programs. “I am humbled and proud to accept the offer to become the University of Delaware’s next director of athletics,” said Ziady. “I understand the rich history and tradition of Delaware athletics and I can’t wait to work with this fine group of coaches, administrators, and staff as we go forward in the years ahead and build upon that great legacy. We are excited to settle our family in the Newark community and build the next chapter of our lives as part of the Delaware family.” At Atlantic Coast Conference member Boston College, Ziady was responsible for handling both the long-range fiscal and strategic planning for the department as well as the day-to-day administration of all business and financial operations. In addition, he handled football game scheduling and contract administration, as well as overseeing five of the men’s and women’s athletic programs (football, men’s and women’s golf, and men’s and women’s sailing). In 2010 Ziady negotiated the six-year, multi-million dollar sponsorship agreement with Under Armour that outfitted all 31 Eagle sport programs and provided finan-

cial support for the department. The sponsorship was the largest in the history of BC Athletics. Delaware also holds a sponsorship agreement with Under Armour. Ziady most recently served as chair of both the ACC Women’s Golf Committee as well as the Conference’s Awards Committee. He has previously served on the ACC and Hockey East Finance Committees as well as on competition committees in both the America East (baseball) and Big East (golf) conferences. He has twice served on NCAA certification subcommittees for fiscal integrity, both at Northeastern and BC. “Eric Ziady is one of the finest athletics administrators I’ve ever been around,” said Gene DeFilippo, Boston College director of athletics from 1997 until 2012. “He is incredibly bright and enthusiastic and was an integral part of our management team at Boston College. Within a very short period of time, everyone in the Delaware athletics community will realize what a great selection the University has made. We are all very excited for Eric and his family.” A 1988 Providence College graduate, Ziady began his career at Northeastern as an assistant to the athletic director, handling compliance responsibilities, coordinating facility management and operations on game days, and assisting in marketing efforts. In 1991, he was appointed athletic business manager and was responsible for all of the department’s fiscal activities, while also serving as the liaison with outside booster and support groups. In 1994, Ziady was promoted to assistant director of athletics at Northeastern. He served on the Huskies’ senior management team that planned long-range departmental goals and policies. Included among this group’s assignments was the development of a five-year strategic plan to address Title IX and gender equity issues. Ziady, who earned both a master’s degree in sports management and a master’s of business administration degree from Northeastern, has twice served as a marketing consultant. He is also a member of the College Athletic Business Management Association. In 1990, he worked on a corporate marketing project with the North Atlantic Conference (now America East) and in 1992, he assisted the Boston Organizing Committee in marketing and fundraising in an attempt to attract national and international amateur events to the city. “We are excited about having Eric join the University of Delaware athletics family,” said Blue Hen women’s basketball head coach Tina Martin. “He has the right kind of mindset to lead Delaware at a very exciting time. I’m looking forward to working with him for many years to come.” Ziady and his wife, Lauren, have three children, Matthew (5), Lindsey (4), and Courtney (2). Lauren recently earned her PhD in counseling psychology from Northeastern University.

Her Delaware men’s teams have won at least 10 matches in all but five seasons and her overall record is 213-168 (.559), including a 15-5 record in 1996-97 when the Blue Hens captured the America East title. The win marked just the second conference title in school history and the first since 1974. She also led the Blue Hens to a second place finish in 1995-96 and semifinal appearances in 1995, 1998, and 1999. Travis was named America East Men’s Tennis Coach of the Year twice, in 1996, and 1997. On the women’s side, Travis has led the Blue Hens to a 21-year record of 249-125 (.666), which includes establishing school records for wins in three different seasons when the Hens posted marks of 17-0, 17-1, and 17-9. She led the Blue Hens to eight straight America East Tournament second place finishes in 1994-2001 and was the league Coach of the Year in 1994-95, 1995-96, and 1999-2000. Most recently, Travis has led the Blue Hens to nine consecutive 10-plus win seasons. The 2012-13 squad, with just one senior on the roster, advanced to the CAA Semifinals for the first time in school history and were led by three all-conference honorees. Her 1996-97 team went undefeated with a 17-0 mark and her 199798 squad completed a school record 42-match win streak which tied the longest win streak by any women’s athletic team in UD history. Prior to returning to her alma mater as an assistant coach, Travis served as head coach for boy’s and girl’s tennis at nearby A.I. duPont High School. Travis, the first woman to coach a men’s team at the University of Delaware, has been named conference Coach of the Year five times, twice in men’s and three times in women’s tennis. In 1995, she was named the United States Professional Tennis Association Middle Atlantic Division Women’s College Coach of the Year. In addition, she was the USPTA Women’s Open Player of the Year in 1995 and the USPTA Rookie of the Year in 1994. A 1989 University of Delaware honors graduate in physical education, Travis was one of the all-time great tennis players in Blue Hen history during her career in 1985-89.

AUSTIN LONGACRE

ASSISTANT COACH || SECOND SEASON AT DELAWARE || DELAWARE ‘10

One of the most decorated players in University of Delaware men’s tennis history, Austin Longacre returned to the Blue Hens for the 2012-13 campaign as his first season as an assistant coach. In the fall of 2014, Longacre was promoted to associate head coach for the men’s team and is currently in his second overall season on the women’s coaching staff. Delaware head coach Laura Travis, now in her 22nd season with the Blue Hens and also a UD alumnus, regarded Longacre as one of the most accomplished Delaware tennis graduates. She continued, “Austin’s oncourt record speaks for itself, but more importantly, he shares our team values and our vision to move the Delaware tennis programs forward.” Longacre was a four-year letter winner for Delaware and is the all-time singles career wins leader with a record of 70-38, all in the number one slot. Additionally, he posted a doubles record of 56-41, also all in the first flight. A three-time UD Alumni Association/Alexander J. Taylor Team Most Valuable Player, Longacre garnered First Team All-Colonial Athletic Association Doubles and Second Team All-CAA Singles honors as a senior. He finished the season with a singles record of 18-8 in the top spot while going 16-10 in doubles action. During his junior season, Longacre scored a singles record of 20-5, good for third all-time to sit third on the all-time most wins list. Longacre put up a school-record 22 singles wins while playing in a school-best 33 matches played as a sophomore. He earned Second Team All-CAA singles and Third Team All-CAA doubles accolades for both seasons. Off the court, Longacre was the Vice President of the Delaware Christian Athletes, where he organized recreational-based events such as dodgeball and ultimate Frisbee tournaments in addition to bowling nights. Furthermore, he arranged service projects like Jesus Justice and the Poor and a rebuilding service project in Philadelphia. As Vice President, Longacre also budgeted and allocated funding for all service projects and retreats. Longacre also interned with the University of Delaware Chief Financial Officer’s office and Global Refuge Internaional. Additionally, he spent eight years as an assistant tennis professional with Better Tennis LLC in Elkton, Md. Longacre graduated in 2010 from the University of Delaware with a bachelor’s of science degree in finance.

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE WOMEN’S TENNIS ABOUT THE CAA

ABOUT THE CAA With nearly three decades of success athletically and academically, the Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences. The CAA encompasses many of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Charleston, S.C. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 13 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 13 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 23 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2012-13, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 23 teams in 15 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2013. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes several of the nation’s top media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 22 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis and track & field. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2012-13, 27 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 43 student-athletes received All-America honors in 14 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past seven years. CAA teams have combined to win 41 games in postseason play since 2006, including 14 victories in the NCAA Tournament. The CAA has posted at least one NCAA Tournament win in six of the past eight years, including the last four in a row. The conference has seen five or more teams reach postseason play in four of the last five seasons. In women’s basketball, 2013 CAA champion Delaware defeated West Virginia and North Carolina to become the 12th CAA

team to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Behind the play of Honda Award winner Elena Delle Donne, the Blue Hens finished the season ranked #13 in the final USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll. Drexel captured the WNIT championship with a 46-43 victory over Utah and James Madison reached the quarterfinals of the WNIT. CAA teams have gone 20-9 in postseason play over the past two years. The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. Three men’s soccer teams earned NCAA Tournament berths last season and each current member of the conference has reached the NCAA Tournament since 2006. In softball, Hofstra reached the NCAA Super Regionals in 2012 and the CAA placed two teams (Hofstra and James Madison) in the NCAA’s for the first time last season. At least two women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament three times in the past six seasons. William & Mary’s men’s cross country squad has made the NCAA Championship in 12 of the past 14 years and the women’s team had two runners (Elaina Balouris and Emily Stites) earn AllAmerica honors in 2012. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. The CAA sent three teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in 2013 and has had at least 11 players selected in nine of the last 11 Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also had individuals earn All-America honors in women’s lacrosse, track and field and swimming & diving last season and had players nationally ranked in tennis and golf. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university education and life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs, visiting faculty programs and a recent partnership with NBC Learn to provide educational videos to over 8,500 public schools across the United States. CAA schools are also very active in community service projects. The CAA Blood Challenge, which is held each fall, has raised more than 36,000 units of blood over the past 11 years. The firstever CAA Food Drive Challenge last winter resulted in over 9,500 pounds of donated food. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when two of its current members- James Madison University and the College of

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE WOMEN’S TENNIS ABOUT THE CAA

ABOUT THE CAA William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, George Mason University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new conference. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Old Dominion University joined the CAA in 1991 and was followed by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995.

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE WOMEN’S TENNIS FACILITIES

ATHLETICS FACILITIES BOB CARPENTER CENTER Men’s Basketball, Women’s Basketball, Volleyball

The Bob Carpenter Center, named in honor of longtime University board of trustee member, athletic benefactor, and former Philadelphia Phillies owner R.R.M. “Bob” Carpenter Jr. who died in 1990, serves as home for the University’s basketball and volleyball programs as well as a site for a wide variety of other events such as convocations, concerts, and banquets. Special features of the facility are a 120-person football locker room, men’s and women’s basketball locker rooms, administrative offices, the state-ofthe-art Chuck Hall Memorial Weight Room, and athletic training rooms. The BCC also includes a comfortable glass-walled reception lounge area with views into Delaware Stadium and to the Acierno Arena; and a scoreboard with a color video message center. The BCC served as host to the First and Second Rounds of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.

DELAWARE STADIUM

Football, Men’s Lacrosse, Women’s Lacrosse

Built in 1952, Delaware Stadium (Tubby Raymond Field) featured a grass surface until February 2010 when an artificial FieldTurf surface was installed. The stadium seats 22,000, giving Delaware the largest playing facility for lacrosse in the CAA and among the largest in the nation. Prior to the 2000 season, eight poles of permanent broadcast-quality lights were installed by Musco Lighting. In addition, the South End Zone bleachers were also replaced. A new 40 x 34-foot scoreboard, including a 40 x 16 video screen, was installed prior to the 2008 football season and is located at the North end of Delaware Stadium. Live video play-by-play action, replays, and features are shown throughout football, men’s lacrosse, and women’s lacrosse games.

BOB HANNAH STADIUM Baseball

Formerly called Delaware Diamond, Bob Hannah Stadium is the home of the Blue Hen Baseball team. The stadium was renamed in May 2000 in honor of longtime baseball coach Bob Hannah, who announced his retirement after a legendary 36year career. Features of the stadium include an enclosed press box, an outdoor batting cage, and banners on the outfield fence signifying Delaware’s numerous conference titles and NCAA appearances. The field dimensions are 330 down the left and rightfield lines and 400 to center field while the stadium seats 1,300. Major renovations to the facility will be made prior to the 2014 season including installation of artificial turf, new dugouts and bullpens, batting cages, a seating berm, updated stadium fencing and storage capacity.

SOFTBALL STADIUM Softball

The stadium includes seating for approximately 500, a dirt infield, and dugouts. Prior to the 2010 season, the stadium underwent renovations to include new bleachers, a press box, new scoreboard, and batting cages.

RULLO STADIUM

Field Hockey

This state-of-the-art stadium was dedicated on September 18, 1998. Its construction was made possible, in part, by the generous donation of one UD alumnus: Fred P. Rullo Jr., AS ‘63, a former baseball and football letterwinner, and his wife, Madeleine. Rullo Stadium features an artificial turf surface (Astro Turf-12 surface installed in 2008) covering 122,928 square feet (2.82 acres) permits a full-sized game field for all applicable sports as well as two side-by-side practice areas running across the field. There is bleacher seating for approximately 2,000 fans, lights, a press box, a multi-sport scoreboard and blacktopped parking behind the bleachers.

DELAWARE MINI-STADIUM Men’s Soccer, Women’s Soccer, Outdoor Track & Field

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE WOMEN’S TENNIS ABOUT DELAWARE

WHAT IS A BLUE HEN? The University of Delaware’s athletic teams are proud to have one of the most unique nicknames in all of college athletics – “The Fightin’ Blue Hens.” It is a name they carry with pride that stretches back over 200 years of history of the state of Delaware. The Blue Hen nickname has been continuously used by all University of Delaware intercollegiate teams since 1911. On December 9, 1775, the Continental Congress resolved that a military battalion was to be raised from the lower three counties along the Delaware River. Thus was born the Delaware Regiment, a group of eight companies representing New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties. The second company was composed of men from Kent County and was under the command of Captain John Caldwell, an avid fan and owner of gamecocks. The militia often amused themselves by staging cock fights with these birds which were of a breed known as the Kent County Blue Hen, having some blue plumage. The renown of these chickens spread rapidly during that time when cock fighting was a popular form of amusement, and the “Blue Hens’ Chickens” quickly developed a reputation for ferocity and fighting success. Captain Caldwell’s company likewise acquired a considerable reputation for its own fighting prowess in engagements with the British at Long Island, White Plains, Trenton, and Princeton, and was soon known as “the Blue Hen Chicken” company. One version of the story states that Caldwell’s company rushed into battle screaming “We’re sons of the Blue Hen and we’re game to the end!” Captain Caldwell’s company was part of Col. John Haslet’s first Delaware regiment that formed near the outset of the Revolution in January, 1776, and in August, 1781, remnants of the regiment were still battling at Eutaw Springs, SC. Although often referred to as “The Fighting Delawares,” Haslet’s regiment also won the sobriquet, “The Blue Hen Chickens,” which has become the nickname for all Delawareans. The name was formally adopted by the Delaware General Assembly in April, 1939 when the “Blue Hen Chicken” was named the official state bird. The University of Delaware’s College of Agricultural Sciences maintains a breeding group of the Blue Hen Chicken on its campus farm in Newark. The UD mascot, YoUDee, made his debut in September 1993. YoUDee stands 6-foot, 8-inches tall with a 6-1 wing-span and size 28FF sneakers. Another mascot, the pint-sized Baby Blue, was introduced during the 1999-2000 athletic season. YoUDee is a familiar figure at most University of Delaware athletics events and makes numerous appearances on campus and throughout the community each year.

Dr. Francis Alison, to open a small school in New London, Pa., in 1743. By 1765, the school had been moved to Newark, where in 1769 it received a charter as the Academy of Newark from Thomas and Richard Penn. New Ark College opened as a degree-granting institution in 1834 and the Academy was merged with it. The institution was renamed Delaware College in 1843 and then closed in 1859 because of financial problems. Funds provided by the Morrill Land-Grant College Act of 1862 led to its reopening in 1870. The Women’s College was opened in 1914. In 1921, the two colleges – Delaware College and the Women’s College – merged and became the University of Delaware.

The honor roll is the highest federal recognition for volunteering, service learning and civic engagement. Susan Serra, Office of Service Learning coordinator at UD, said the selection is a tribute to the University. “It’s gratifying to have UD recognized for the outstanding work our faculty and students are doing in reaching out to the community.” More than 12,000 students—over half of UD’s student population—donated 140,000 hours to community service projects in 2010–11, from teaching opera to middle school students, to developing computer databases for the Food Bank of Delaware.
