Harrison New Athletics Director
This summer, Gerald Harrison, former Duke University senior associate director of athletics/internal affairs, was named Austin Peay's athletics director.
Prior to his time at Duke, Harrison worked for the University of Tennessee’s football program under Hall of Fame head coach Phillip Fulmer. At his last two schools, he served at the administrative level for athletics departments that won national championships in multiple sports, including football and men’s basketball.
“I could not be more excited to accept this position,” Harrison said in July. “Our primary goal will be to make the experience of our student-athletes the best it can possibly be as we strive to have a championship program athletically, academically and socially. And we'll do so with the highest degrees of integrity and sportsmanship.
"Working alongside the student athletes, coaches, staff, the community of Clarksville and the Governors’ passionate fans and supporters, we will build on past achievements and embark on an extremely bright future for Austin Peay athletics. I can't wait to get started.”
