Warde Manuel Named Director Of Athletics At UConn

University of Connecticut President Susan Herbst announced today that Warde J. Manuel would become the school's next director of athletics.

Manuel had previously served as AD at the University of Buffalo for six years. He's a 1990 graduate of Michigan, where he excelled in both football and track and field.

"We are incredibly proud and thrilled that Warde will be joining the Husky family," Herbst said in a statement. "UConn is one of the great American universities, and our athletics program is the envy of many. It's because of this that we were able to attract an amazing pool of candidates from across the nation -- and an ideal, standout candidate of Warde's exceptionally high caliber. He will play the integral, and even transformational, role in the future of UConn athletics. It's a great day for this university."

Manuel led a 20-sport program at Buffalo, where he was known for his focused academic plan as well as on-field success from the football, rowing, wrestling and tennis teams.

"I am so honored and excited to come to the University of Connecticut," Manuel said. "UConn is synonymous with greatness, excellence and achievement. It is without a doubt one of the legendary schools that is at the pinnacle of intercollegiate athletics."
