Florida is losing another member of its ultra-successful athletic department.
Mike Hill, the executive associate athletic director for external affairs at UF, has accepted the job of athletic director at North Carolina-Charlotte.
“He did a phenomenal job at Florida,” said Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin. “We benefited from him being at Florida and Charlotte gets the benefit now. We’ll get someone good, but he won’t have the institutional experience of Mike.”
Hill had been working with the University Athletic Association for 25 years.
“It’s a perfect fit professionally and personally,” Hill said in a release. “In the end for me, it was an incredible professional experience and a wonderful opportunity personally to go back to an area that’s home. The program has a really strong foundation and a history of success. There’s a lot to build upon and cultivate and grow. The athletic facilities are outstanding, really terrific for any level you might consider in any conference.”
