March 22, 2005

Clemson Athletic Director Dr. Terry Don Phillips has announced responsibility changes within the school’s athletic department.

Phil Grayson, the director of Clemson’s student-athlete enrichment program the last three years, will move his office from Vickery Hall of the Jervey Athletic Center where he will oversee the NCAA compliance office, supervise men’s and women’s tennis and coordinate the implementation of the department’s strategic plan.

Stephanie Ellison and Jess Rigler will handle the responsibilities of Clemson’s NCAA compliance office on a daily basis and will report to Grayson. Rigler joined the athletic department on March 14 and Ellison is in her second year as an assistant athletic director for compliance.

Becky Bowman, Clemson’s NCAA Compliance director the last seven years, will move to Vickery Hall and will oversee the student-athlete enrichment program.

Linda White, Clemson’s Senior Women’s Administrator and associate athletic director, will retire at the end of the academic year and will be replaced by Barbara Kennedy-Dixon. Kennedy-Dixon had been Director of Women’s Basketball Operations. White will continue to work for Clemson on a part-time basis as coordinator of the department’s outreach programs.

Former Clemson All-America football player Kyle Young has been added to the department as an administrator and will report to Senior Associate Athletic Director Dwight Rainey. Young’s job is a newly created entry level position that will be involved with sport supervision, among other responsibilities.

Joe White, longtime academic advisor within the department will retire in May, but will continue to work for the athletic department on a part-time basis with financial aid for Clemson athletes.
