Sandy Barbour: What it Means to be a Woman Athletic Director

Sandy Barbour

Cal athletic director Sandy Barbour lets us in on why she felt Sonny Dykes was the right coach for the Bears, why she likes the new assistant coaching staff, and the new athletic upgrades ahead for the swim team and more.

Cal athletic director Sandy Barbour opens up on being one of the few female athletic directors in college sports, the sports she played, her favorite Top Dog and more.

I’ll be honest with you, I try not to really focus on it or think about it a lot on a day-to-day basis because to me, my job is to be the very best Sandy Barbour you can possibly be and serve Cal and serve our community and do what’s right for Cal everyday, but certainly there’s a bigger picture.

Sandy Barbour has guided Cal Athletics through one of the most successful periods in school history, a tenure marked by championships, innovation, facility modernization and revenue growth.
