Daemen College President Gary A. Olson has appointed Bridget Niland as director of athletics. A member of the college faculty since 2006, she replaces William Morris, who has left to pursue other opportunities.
In addition, Jessica Gorski has been promoted to associate athletic director for sport administration as the athletic department continues to strengthen in light of its advancement to the Provisional Year of the NCAA Division II membership process.
“These two appointments will go a long way to move Daemen athletics to new levels of excellence,” said Olson. “We are now perfectly positioned to gain full NCAA membership.”
With Niland’s appointment as Daemen’s athletic director, she becomes, at present, only the second woman in that role at a Western New York college, joining Medaille College's Amy DeKay.
