Savannah State University President Cheryl Davenport Dozier named Opio Mashariki as director of Intercollegiate Athletics effective Wednesday. Mashariki has served as interim director since August 2018. “Mr. Mashariki has been a valuable leader in the athletic department for a number of years, and his tenure as interim athletics director convinced me a national search was not necessary,” Dozier said. “He has a wealth of knowledge about all facets of SSU athletics, and I am pleased he has agreed to take the reins of responsibility on a permanent basis.” Prior to joining Savannah State in 2005 as assistant athletic director for media relations, Mashariki worked at his alma mater, Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Fla., for approximately four years, first as assistant sports information director and later as interim sports information director. SSU’s athletics program will complete the transition from NCAA Division I to NCAA Division II by the end of the 2019-20 academic year and will compete in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference beginning in the fall of 2019. –Savannah Morning News, Read More
