Jack Hayes Named Athletic Director at Brown

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Jack Hayes, currently director of athletics at Hofstra University, has been named director of athletics at Brown University. Hayes will begin his work at Brown July 1, 2012, succeeding Michael Goldberger.

Hayes’s appointment was the result of a national search chaired by Margaret Klawunn, vice president for campus life and student services, to whom the director of athletics reports. The search committee recommended Hayes to Brown President Ruth J. Simmons, who approved the recommendation in consultation with President-elect Christina Paxson. The director of athletics serves as a member of the President’s Executive Committee.

“We have recently affirmed the significant role of athletics at Brown and initiated an important set of improvements to the program,” Simmons said. “Jack Hayes offers the leadership experience to carry through successfully on the goals that have been set and the measures that have been put in place under the exceptional tenure of Michael Goldberger.”
