"Andrew's experience at both the University of Alabama-Birmingham and Utah State has demonstrated his ability to both increase attendance at events and lead game production from a marketing standpoint, which will be at the forefront of his responsibilities,” SUU Athletic Director Debbie Corum said. “We welcome Andrew and his family back to the state of Utah and and we are excited for him to get started at SUU."
