Next Up 2017

NEXT UP

Welcome to College AD’s second annual NEXT UP presented by adidas.

The premise is a simple one. NEXT UP are senior level administrators, handpicked by some of the most respected athletic directors in the industry, who are believed to be ready to take the next step as athletic directors in their own right. Out of those nominated by our panel, we selected 13 NEXT UP recipients from across the country to represent the 2017 class. The only limiting factor is that none of the nominees could have served as an AD previously, beyond an interim role.

Over four days, June 12th-15th, 2017, we revealed our inaugural honorees.
