NEW YORK, NY - After an extensive national search, Fordham University announced today the appointment of David T. Roach as the new director of intercollegiate athletics and recreation. Roach, who saw 75 of his teams win league championships in 22 years as an athletic director and who served as the president of the National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors in 2010-2011, will begin his tenure on October 15.

“In David Roach, we have found an athletic director with a demonstrated ability to inspire the best performances from his student-athletes, both on the field and in the classroom,” said Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham. “David’s approach - giving equal weight to athletics and scholarship - makes him an ideal fit for Fordham. We are confident that our student-athletes will benefit greatly under his leadership.”

"I'm extremely excited about joining the Fordham University family,” said Roach. “I cannot wait to get to campus and begin working with Father McShane, the University administration, campus community, outstanding coaches and athletic staff to accomplish great things for Fordham student-athletes. I have always admired Fordham's educational mission and the role that intercollegiate athletics plays in accomplishing that mission. I'm honored and humbled to have been selected as Fordham's Director of Athletics."
