Anton Goff, currently the Director of Athletics at Bowie State University, was named the next athletic director at the University of Hartford, as announced by President Walter Harrison at a press conference on Friday, May 2nd.

“I thank the entire Bowie State University community for the support that not only I received, but the athletic department received from day one,” Goff said in a news release. “The experience I had at Bowie State was incredible and I truly believe the program is heading in the right direction.”

Goff’s introduction as the University of Hartford’s fifth athletic director concludes a two-month search, assisted by Parker Executive Search of Atlanta, for a successor to Patricia H. Meiser, who announced her retirement after spending 21 years at Hartford. He will assume his new position at Hartford in July.

“I am absolutely delighted that we have attracted an individual of Anton’s capabilities to be our athletics director,” said Harrison. “I am excited by the energy, the enthusiasm, and the experience that he brings to this university. I can’t wait to work with him in further strengthening our athletic program.”

Goff has nearly 20 years of experience in athletic administration. Prior to his three-plus year stint at Bowie State, he held positions at the University of Maryland, Michigan State University, Kent State University and Virginia Commonwealth University.
