Jeff Geiser joined the University of Cincinnati's Department of Athletics in October 2010 as an assistant director of sports communications.

The Cincinnati native currently serves as the primary media relations contact for Bearcats baseball, swimming and diving and women's soccer.

Geiser brings a unique depth of experience to the UC Sports Communications office after working for multiple years in the National Football League, Major League Baseball and minor league football.

Since July 2005, Geiser has been a member of the Cincinnati Bengals Public Relations department. He served as the full-time intern during the 2005-06 season that saw the Bengals win the AFC North Division Championship and reach the playoffs for the first time since 1990-91. The Bengals received the 2005-06 Pete Rozelle Award from the Professional Football Writers of America for having the top public relations department in the league. Following his internship, Geiser has maintained a position with the Bengals as a PR Assistant, where he primarily works home games, the NFL Draft and training camp events.

Geiser's most recent venture in the sports communications industry includes a trip to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. for the 2012 Super Bowl, where he served as a Public Relations Volunteer Assistant for the National Football League. Geiser also served in the same capacity for the 2010 NFL Combine in Indianapolis, as well as the 2010 Super Bowl and 2010 Pro Bowl, both of which were held at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Fla.

Before joining the UC Sports Communications staff on a full-time basis, Geiser was a weekly contributor to GoBEARCATS.com and a member of the football statistics crew during the start of the 2010 season.

From March through July 2010, Geiser served as the Director of Media Relations for the expansion Cincinnati Commandos, a minor league indoor football club that won the Continental Indoor Football League Championship its first two seasons before adding a third title in the Ultimate Indoor Football League in 2012.

Prior to his first Super Bowl, Geiser worked in the NFL's information technology office in New York City as a Player Participation Auditor during the 2009-10 season.

From May 2008 until departing for the NFL in August 2009, Geiser was an intern in the Cincinnati Reds front office. He worked in the Entertainment, Events and Productions department during his first season and served as an assistant to the project manager who oversaw the installation of a new control room and high-definition video boards at Great American Ball Park. In his second season with the Reds, Geiser worked in the Creative Services department, where he served as an editorial contributor to Reds Magazine and launched the team's official Twitter account.

Geiser's career in the sports industry began in the spring of 2005 at the local Cincinnati ABC affiliate, WCPO-TV, where he interned for multi Emmy Award-winning sports director, John Popovich, and longtime sports reporter Dennis Jansen. While at WCPO, Geiser screened calls for Cincinnati's longest running televised sports talk show, "Sports of All Sorts."

A double graduate from the University of Cincinnati after earning Bachelor of Arts degrees in communication in 2007 and journalism in 2009, Geiser wrote for the school newspaper, The News Record, while in journalism school. His writing has also been featured in Athletes Quarterly magazine.

Geiser was born and raised in Cincinnati and attended La Salle High School, the same alma mater that has produced the likes of UC men's basketball head coach Mick Cronin, as well as UC football alumni and NFL players Brent Celek and J.K. Schaffer.
