Badgers' Alvarez named 'Athletic Director of the Year'

Alvarez is in his 15th year as Wisconsin's athletic director, and his 13th without sharing the title of head football coach.

Castiglione was named the national athletic director of the year by the Sports Business Journal in 2009, and he was a finalist for the same award in 2016.

Since he was hired on April 30, 1998, OU has won 17 team national championships, including 10 in the last five years.

Most recently, Tech's athletic profile has boasted several of the nation's elite programs as five teams - baseball, men's basketball, men's track and field, women's tennis and men's golf - have all ranked in the top 10 of their respective sports since the start of January alone. The men's track and field program led by Wes Kittley is now No. 1 in the USTFCCCA poll for the fourth-consecutive week. The campaign exceeded its goal of securing a $5 million endowment for the J.T. and Margaret Talkington Leadership Academy.

Hocutt had also spent the past three years as a member of the College Football Selection Committee with the final two years of his three-year term spent as chairman of the committee.

The award is given by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) to highlight the positive contributions to student athletes, campuses, and surrounding communities.

The Athletics Director's school also needed to pass a compliance check and could not have been on probation or cited for lack of institutional control during the Athletic Director's tenure, according to the news release.
