BRUCE MCCUTCHEON (right) has been named one of 28 winners of the Under Armour Athletic Director of the Year award, which spans seven collegiate divisions. It was presented June 15 at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics convention in Orlando.
In his 12th year, McCutcheon has orchestrated a far-reaching upgrade to athletics facilities, bolstered the coaching staffs and other personnel, played a key role in the development of a visual identity program, implemented a comprehensive leadership development program for student-athletes, and built upon the tradition of scholar-athlete excellence.
He spearheaded the creation of an athletic facilities master plan, which resulted in a $23 million renovation of Fisher Stadium, construction of a stadium for baseball, renovation of the soccer stadium, and construction of a new softball stadium.
Additionally, the track and field program relocated to Metzgar Fields Athletic Complex, where a new track opened for competition in 2009 and hosted the Patriot League Championships in 2011.
