Tim Hall appointed president of DI-AAA ADA

Tim Hall will serve as the president of the I-AAA Athletic Directors Association for the 2017-18 athletic year.

UMBC Director of Athletics Tim Hall has been appointed as the president of the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (ADA), a professional organization administered by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), composed of Division I athletic directors of institutions that do not sponsor football.

Hall is in his first year at the UMBC athletics director and will begin his one-year terms as the I-AAA ADA president in July. He was confirmed to the position by a unanimous vote by all members in attendance at the 2017 NACDA Conference in Orlando. Last year he served one term as the ADA 1st vice president.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my tenure on the executive committee and leadership group of the I-AAA ADA and am thrilled to be chosen as its president for the upcoming year,” Hall said in a statement released by UMBC. “There are so many critical issues that athletic directors face in today’s climate, and this group has always put the student-athlete in the center of its bulls-eye. I am anxious to get started guiding this committed group of leaders.”

Hall also serves on the NCAA volleyball rules committee. He was selected as the chairman of the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics for the fall of 2014. He served on the 15-member, multi-divisional committee since 2011 and had previously chaired the CWA/MOIC (Minority Opportunities and Interests Committee) Disability Subcommittee from 2012-14.

“Tim Hall’s appointment as president of the I-AAA Athletic Directors Association is a recognition not only of his role as a leader in intercollegiate athletics but also of the value he places on collaboration,” UMBC President Freeman A. Hrabowski III said in the statement. “I know he will work hard over the next year to advance initiatives to all of the association’s institutions.”

Hall takes over for Troy Austin, the Director of Athletics at Longwood University. Serving as Hall’s 1st Vice President will be Mount St. Mary’s Director of Athletics Lynne Robinson. The 2nd Vice President will be Hartford’s, Mary Ellen Gillespie. UMKC’s Carla Wilson will be the 3rd Vice President. Texas A&M Corpus Christi AD Scott Lazenby will serve as Secretary, and Florida Gulf Coast’s Ken Kavanagh will be the Association’s Treasurer.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
