Lee Reed

Position:
Director of Athletics


Lee Reed was named the 17th director of intercollegiate athletics (Francis X. Rienzo chair) at Georgetown University in April 2010. As director of athletics, Reed oversees the operations of all Georgetown University intercollegiate athletics programs, which includes 29 sports and more than 750 student-athletes.

Under his leadership the Hoyas have remained prominent on the national landscape as women's cross country won the 2011 NCAA Championship, the Coed sailing team won an Intercollegiate Sailing Association National title, women's soccer competed in the NCAA Championship Quarterfinals in 2010 and a number of teams garnered regular season and postseason BIG EAST Championships (men's golf, men's soccer, women's lacrosse and women's track and field). The men's and women's basketball programs both gained berths in the NCAA Tournament in each of Reed's first two years on the Hilltop, with the women's team reaching the Sweet 16 in 2011. Off the competitive fields, Georgetown student-athletes have excelled, with 14 teams recognized by the NCAA for high Academic Progress Rate scores and 342 student-athletes were selected to the BIG EAST Academic Honor Roll, the most in the BIG EAST Conference.

In addition to his administrative oversight, Reed is leading the athletics department's ambitious $125 million fundraising campaign as a part of the University's overall "For Generations to Come" Campaign, which has raised $25 million already. The largest fundraising effort in GU Athletics history includes $65M in infrastructure improvements, with the majority of those dollars earmarked for the Intercollegiate Athletics Center (IAC), a 130,000 square foot practice and training facility that will greatly enhance the support facilities available to Georgetown's student-athletes. The campaign will also raise significant endowment dollars for scholarship support, as well as programmatic and annual fund growth essential to providing the best experience for the young men and women who wear the Blue and Gray. Improvements have also been made with a $750,000 gift to upgrade North Kehoe Field, a $1 million gift to improve baseball and $300,000 for work done in the varsity weight room.

Reed came to Georgetown after serving as the director of athletics at Cleveland State University in Ohio for eight years. A former basketball standout at Cleveland State, he joined the Vikings Athletics Department in the summer of 2002.

Under Reed's leadership, the Viking athletics program moved into the upper ranks of the Horizon League and was recognized as one of the top programs in the state of Ohio. Reed oversaw a department that captured 11 Horizon League Championships, as well as six runner-up finishes in his final three years. In addition, Cleveland State University was represented at the NCAA Championships 15 times during that span.

Reed's plan and vision led the Vikings to claim the James J. McCafferty Trophy during the 2007-08 season, an honor recognizing the Horizon League's all-sport champion. It was the first time that CSU captured the award. CSU won the league's Men's All-Sports Award, while the Vikings finished third in the Women's All-Sports Award.

Reed is well-respected nationally, having represented the Horizon League on the NCAA Management Council and as the president of the NCAA I-AAA Athletic Director's Association in 2007-08. He is also a member of the NCAA Basketball Academic Enhancement Group, a working group composed of presidents, chancellors, head coaches, commissioners, athletic directors and faculty athletic representatives, which was established to develop strategies to enhance the academic performance and graduation rates of NCAA Division I men's basketball.

Reed has served as chairman of the John McLendon Memorial Minority Postgraduate Scholarship Awards committee, which is operated through NACDA, and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. In March of 2005, he was named one of the 50 Most Powerful African-Americans in Sports by Black Enterprise magazine.

Reed rejoined the Vikings after spending the previous seven years (1995-02) at Eastern Michigan University, the last four as associate athletic director for internal affairs. As associate athletic director, Reed oversaw all internal affairs of the department, including compliance, operations and facilities. He had administrative oversight for seven Olympic sports, coordinating fundraising, budget development and the hiring and evaluation of coaches. He administered the athletic department's $3.5 million grant-in-aid budget that covered 21 sports.

A four-year letterman in men's basketball at Cleveland State, Reed played on teams that compiled a 61-47 mark, serving as team captain for the 1982-83 season. Reed then served as an assistant men's basketball coach at the University of New Mexico from 1984-86. He later received a master's degree in sports administration from UNM in 1994.
