Dec. 18, 2012
SPRINGFIELD -- Missouri State Director of Athletics Kyle Moats has announced the promotion of Casey Hunt to the position of Senior Associate Director of Athletics, effective Jan. 1. The promotion was approved by the Missouri State Board of Governors at its regularly-scheduled meeting Dec. 14.
Hunt, who oversees the operations of several of MSU's 16 men's and women's sports programs, is in her seventh year as associate director of athletics and her 10th year overall at Missouri State. The department's senior woman administrator (SWA) has oversight of the Bears' compliance, athletic training and strength and conditioning programs and serves as the primary personnel administrator for intercollegiate athletics.
"I appreciate her loyalty to Missouri State and our student-athletes," said Moats. "Casey is an invaluable member of our administrative team who has successfully demonstrated the ability to take on more responsibility."
She joined the MSU staff in March 2003 as assistant director of athletics for compliance, a post in which she served until succeeding Darlene Bailey as associate athletics director in September of 2006. She came to MSU from Coastal Carolina University, where she had been assistant athletics director for compliance since 1998. At Coastal Carolina, Hunt's responsibilities included overseeing budgets for some of the school's 17 sports, working in game operations, supervising the hosting of conference championships and directing summer sports camps. She was honored as the Big South Compliance Director of the Year in 2000.
"I look forward to continuing to serve Missouri State University and our student-athletes and coaches," Hunt said. "I feel blessed to have been able to work with this University the past 10 years, and it's extremely rewarding to be a part of the continued success and growth."
The native of Nanticoke, Pa., graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 1994 and earned a master's degree from the University of Connecticut in 1996. She was a four-year starter in women's basketball at St. Bonaventure and was inducted into the school's athletics hall of fame in February 2007. Additionally, she was inducted into the Luzerne County (Pa.) Sports Hall of Fame in August 2010. She also served one year as an intern in the Syracuse University athletics compliance office and spent two years in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference compliance section.
She and her husband, Clint, were married in August.
