Saint Joseph’s University today introduced Jill Bodensteiner as its new director of athletics, marking the appointment of a new athletics director for the first time in 30 years. She succeeds the legendary Don DiJulia ’67, who recently announced his retirement after serving his 50th year in college athletics and 35th as Saint Joseph’s athletics director. “Today is a momentous occasion in the history of Saint Joseph’s,” said University President Mark C. Reed, Ed.D. “I am thrilled with the outcome of our search to identify our new AD. Jill rose to the top of an impressive list of candidates.” Bodensteiner comes to Saint Joseph’s after a 20-year career at her alma mater, the University of Notre Dame, beginning in 1997 in the Office of the General Counsel, progressing to the athletics department in 2009, and culminating in her most recent role as senior associate athletics director, which began five years ago. In her new post, which begins June 1, Bodensteiner will be responsible for overseeing the Hawks’ 20 NCAA Division I men’s and women’s varsity sports and membership in the Atlantic 10 Conference. – Read More
