BUFFALO, NY – It was announced on Tuesday that Paul Vecchio, Senior Associate Athletic Director at the University at Buffalo, has accepted the position of Director of Athletics at Alfred University.
Vecchio has served the Division of Athletics since July of 1995. He will be taking over for Jim Moretti, who is retiring after 14 years as Athletics Director at Alfred.
“Alfred University has gained a great college athletics administrator and I couldn’t be more excited that he has accepted this great leadership opportunity,” Interim Director of Athletics John Lambert said. “Paul has been a valued colleague and friend to me and his leadership and contribution to the division has been invaluable to the success of the department.”
“I owe so many people so much gratitude that it’s hard to know where to start,” said Vecchio. “I have an indelible place in my heart for UB and have been blessed to have been able to learn so much from the talented coaches, colleagues and student-athletes I have worked alongside. The growth of UB Athletics during my tenure has been extraordinary and I expect it to continue into the future.”
Vecchio begins his appointment at Alfred in July.
