Doug Mosley, a longtime athletics administrator at all levels of college athletics, joined the Bearcats as associate director of athletics for external and media communications in January 2011.
Mosley joined UC after serving five years as the senior associate director of athletics at the University of Louisiana-Monroe. He is scheduled to begin his duties at UC on Jan. 18, 2011.
"As we went through this process, we wanted to find the person who was the best fit for the department and UC as a whole," Director of Athletics Mike Thomas said. "We feel certain that person is Doug Mosley. He brings a vast amount of experience at all levels of college athletics and that can only help us as we continue to move this program forward. We are excited to welcome Doug, his wife Stacy, and their two children Luke and Katie to the UC family."
At UC, Mosley will be tasked with the oversight of sports communications and licensing and serve as UC's liaison with IMG College and adidas. He will also serve as the primary media contact for men's basketball and assist in various marketing initiatives and the department's strategic planning process.
"I'm excited to be joining a great staff at the University of Cincinnati," Mosley said."My thanks go out to Mike Thomas, the coaches and staff for their help during this process. I also owe a great deal of thanks to Bobby Staub, the coaches and the staff at ULM. I can't wait to get started and am looking forward to working with everyone at UC and within the Cincinnati community."
Mosley began working at ULM as the Associate Director of Athletics in the summer of 2005. As the department's No. 2 administrator to Director of Athletics Bobby Staub, Mosley has played a role in over $2.5 million in facility development, expansion and renovations; has been charged with administrative oversight for a wide range of sport programs and support units; led the department's implementation of the new Warhawk mascot; and was part of the development of ticket sales and events plans that resulted in five attendance records for football. He arrived in time for ULM's first-ever Sun Belt Conference championship (football) and was on hand for the following two in men's basketball and baseball.
Mosley's administrative oversight included marketing and promotions, ticketing, sports information, event management, athletic training and sports medicine, facility management and operations, business operations, video operations, strength and conditioning and equipment, as well as cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field, tennis and volleyball.
Mosley joined ULM following a stint as Director of Athletics and Recreation for Spring Hill College in Mobile, Ala.

While at Spring Hill, 124 student-athletes were named Academic All-Conference and 29 student-athletes were named NAIA All-America Scholar-Athletes, including all-time highs for single year totals in 2004-05. Mosley also instituted a new student-athlete academic monitoring and counseling system and the Student-Athlete Committee.
Prior to his time at Spring Hill, Mosley served as the Assistant Director of Athletic Development at Troy University. While at Troy, Mosley helped launch the Red Wave Executive Suites program at Movie Gallery Veterans Stadium and managed 27 suites for university boosters and fans.
Prior to that, Mosley served as Marketing & Public Relations Manager for Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast (CSS). Hired as the startup network's fifth employee, he helped grow the company to become the nation's seventh-largest regional sports network and managed the network's relationships with five conferences and a dozen schools.
As Director of Sports Information for the NAIA from 1996 to 2000, Mosley planned and directed event publicity for 23 national championships annually, served as an association spokesperson, produced and syndicated NAIA events for national broadcast and launched the NAIA website.
Mosley also has extensive experience at the international sports level, serving as the softball Venue Press Chief during the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, a representative for Kodak's photographer services at the 1998 Goodwill Games in New York and a United States Olympic Committee track and field press attaché during the 1999 Pan Am Games in Winnipeg. He has also been active in the USOC's Olympic Public Relations Association (OPRA).
Mosley is a member of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) and College Athletic Business Management Association (CABMA). He was formerly a member of the board of directors for both the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and the NAIA Sports Information Directors Association (NAIA-SIDA).
