Fitzpatrick named AD at Coast Guard

Tim Fitzpatrick, a former associate athletic director at Indiana University, has been named the athletic director of the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn.

Yep, the Coast Guard has an athletic program. Who knew? Their nickname is the Bears, and most of their 23 teams compete in the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference.

Fitzpatrick came to IU in 2005 with then-athletic director Rick Greenspan. He left in 2009 to become the athletic director at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. He succeeds Ray Cieplik, who retired this summer after 40 years at the Coast Guard Academy.


  1. I was stationed with the Navy in New London/Groton Conn. Don’t know why anyone would want to live there, but good luck Tim with the Coasties.

  2. Must be taking a long weekend at the Scoop! You guys are missing some strong stuff from our new football coach taking on some guy named Jack.

  3. Ha ha!
    I’ll be removing my foot about now.
    And go ahead and take Monday off, good work.

  4. 95, Fitz gave the school I teach in 100 free tickets at 39 bucks a piece normal price at a time when we needed it. Nobody at IU would listen and Fitzpatrick followed through. 90% of the kids had never seen a college football game. He is a good man!!!
