IUP athletic director Steve Roach gets new job

IUP will be looking for a new athletic director after Steve Roach, who served as athletic director since December of 2015, was hired as executive director of athletics and recreation at Texas A&M-Kingsville.

“Steve has been everything that one could ask for in an athletic director,” IUP President Dr. Michael Driscoll said in a release. “He has worked extremely well with coaches and student-athletes as well as all of our stakeholders. His work has always been in the best interest of not only the university and the program, but in the best interest of helping our students be successful in the classroom, in the community, and in competition.”

Roach spent two years as the athletic department’s associate director and compliance officer.

Roach will complete his tenure at IUP on Sept. 21.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
