Terrance J. Tumey appointed athletics director

Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi has announced the appointment of Terrance J. “Terry” Tumey as the school’s director of athletics.
The appointment of Tumey, a seasoned administrator who has served since 2009 as athletics director at Dominican University of California in San Rafael, culminates a comprehensive nine-month nationwide search.
Tumey was selected from a pool of four finalists who took part in campus-wide interviews and presentations in late May and early June. The search process was guided by a selection committee comprising UC Davis faculty, student, staff, and alumni and athletics department representatives.
Tumey will be officially introduced at a campus event on July 10. He is expected to begin work on Aug. 1.
