Sept. 24, 2004

SPOKANE, Wash. - Joel Morgan, who received his master's in athletic administration from Gonzaga University in 2000, has returned to the Bulldogs as an assistant athletic director for facilities and operations, Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth announced.

Morgan re-joins the Bulldogs from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif., where he was employed in a similar capacity the past two years.

"Joel knows Gonzaga and he knows the West Coast Conference," Roth said in making the announcement. "His primary focus initially will be on the new McCarthey Athletic Center, although he will play a vital role in the entire facilities and operations functions of the department."

The McCarthey Athletic Center, Gonzaga's new 6,000 seat basketball and multi-purpose arena, is nearing completion and will be open for the upcoming basketball season.

Morgan is a 1997 graduate of the University of Iowa where he received a bachelor's of science in sports, health and physical studies. He originally came to the Bulldogs in 1998 where he was a graduate assistant with concentration in the areas of facilities and game management.

Morgan has prior WCC employment experience, working at the University of San Diego for two years where he was the assistant director of athletic facilities. He was responsible for home game management as well as participating in the construction of the Jenny Craig Pavilion that opened in the fall of 2000.

"Joel has been through the opening of one new arena in our conference, and we believe that experience will be beneficial as we launch the McCarthey Athletic Center," Roth said.
