Fitzpatrick leaving Indiana for AD job

Tim Fitzpatrick, an associate athletic director at Indiana University, has been named the athletic director at Texas A&M Corpus Christi.

Fitzpatrick came to Indiana from Army with Rick Greenspan in 2005. He became Greenspan’s top assistant and oversaw external operations of the department.

New athletic director Fred Glass reorganized the department earlier this year and put Fitzpatrick in charge of internal operations.

Fitzpatrick has wanted to run his own department and was a finalist for the open job at Rhode Island two years ago.

“I have prepared all my life to lead a Division I athletic program, and this is a great opportunity to serve a growing program in a wonderful community,” Fitzpatrick said in a new release. “Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend are great places to work and live. My family and I look forward to building a life with the Islanders.”

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi sponsors 11 Division I sports and competes in the Southland Conference.

  1. This man is a class act. I asked for a donation of tickets for needy children that could not afford a game. He sent me 100 tickets and I was able to send several families to an IU football game. It was a win win, they all paid to park and bought concessions and there were 20,000 empty seats at that particular game. Thanks Tim and Good Luck! I will not forget you! You should have seen the look on these kids faces, the joy of being at their first big sporting event! It was amazing!

  2. And so the last vestige of the Greenspan era is gone from 17th St. Not coincidentally, Tim was pretty much the best of the bunch. For all of Rick’s successes here, Tim was the force that made them move. He served IU well. Thanks, Tim.
