At the 1A Athletic Directors’ Annual Meeting in September, Jamie Pollard, Director of Athletics at Iowa State University, was elected to lead the D1A Athletic Directors’ Association in 2012-2013.
Jamie Pollard is in his seventh year as the Director of Athletics at Iowa State University and his impact has been dramatic. Pollard’s mission to raise the profile of the Cyclones has been accomplished with a relentless work ethic, a creative approach to problem solving and a belief that Iowa State Athletics can excel in the Big 12. The Cyclone brand has never been stronger.
His arrival at ISU was preceded by three years (2003-05) as Deputy Athletics Director at the University of Wisconsin. He handled the overall administration of the athletics department for Barry Alvarez, who was then serving in the dual role of A.D. and football coach.
A passionate administrator, Jamie will lead the association as it continues to serve the Directors of Athletics in the 1A Association.
