Corum heading from UConn to Southern Utah
Neal Eskin, UConn's Senior Associate Director of Athletics/External Relations, handled many of the SWA duties for the women's basketball program during the recently-completed season including putting together what could be the toughest non-conference schedule in program history so Corum's departure won't have much of a day to day impact on the women's basketball program.
Corum was the Chair of the American Athletic Conference SWA Committee, and was a member of several other high profile boards including the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee, the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (NACWAA) Board of Directors, the AAC Strategic Planning Task Force and the AAC Athletics Director’s Executive Committee. She also assisted with the design of a $38 million men’s and women’s basketball facility, as well as the design and implementation of a new logo for the University.
“I had a wonderful experience and UConn and I would like to thank everyone in Husky Nation,” said Corum in a statement. “We won a lot of championships and had great success during my time at UConn, but really the best part was the people. I worked with amazing student-athletes and coaches and with a great administrative team. I know that there is a great future ahead for all the Huskies.
“I am very excited to join the athletic family at Southern Utah. I am impressed with the incredible progress this University has made over time and look forward to working with the student-athletes, coaches and administration. I can’t wait to move to this beautiful area of the country and be closer to some of my family members.”
Before taking a position at UConn, Corum spent time at the Southeastern Conference (2000-2012) as the Associate Commissioner of Sports Administration. Corum was familiar with the Southeastern Conference, after spending time there from 1989-1994 as a Director of Championships, as well as an Assistant Director of Championships. She also spent four years at Louisiana State University (1996-2000) as an Associate/Assistant Athletic Director for their Olympic Sports after spending two years at Stanford University (1994-1996) as an Assistant Athletic Director of Intercollegiate Sports.
