Message from the AD

Message from the AD On behalf of Marshall University student-athletes, coaches, and staff, I want to thank you for your continued interest in the Athletic Department. The future is incredibly bright for our programs and we could not have achieved our success without the support of loyal alumni and friends.

Marshall University is committed to achieving the highest levels of success, both academically and athletically. As an institution, we are dedicated to reaching these levels through an operation with the highest integrity. This includes adhering to, in letter and spirit, all of the rules and regulations set forth by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Conference USA and Marshall University.

As a member of the NCAA, Marshall University is responsible for the actions of its representatives of athletic interests. The NCAA definition of a representative includes, but is not limited to, boosters, alumni, faculty, staff, and fans. Member institutions are held accountable for your actions as a representative. We value your interest and support, but we must remind you that a single violation of NCAA legislation, resulting from an inappropriate action on your part, whether intentional or not, could jeopardize the eligibility of a student-athlete, a prospective student-athlete, and/or the compliance office of Marshall University with NCAA and Conference USA rules and regulations.

This publication is intended to aid in the understanding of the basic principles governing the conduct of representatives. As the Marshall Athletic Department strives for academic and athletic excellence, we must always seek the highest standard of ethical conduct. With your help and cooperation in adhering to NCAA and Conference USA rules and regulations, we are confident we can accomplish both of these objectives. Please contact us directly at (304) 696-5408 with ANY questions - it is important to ask before you act!

Thank you for your continued interest and support of Marshall University and its athletic programs.


Mike Hamrick
Director of Athletics
