Behind the Search

May 3, 2018

For over three decades, the University of Utah has had the same person overseeing its athletic department. However, in June, Chris Hill will step down as Athletic Director.

In its search to replace Hill, the school has put together a committee of 14 individuals, as reported by KSL.com. Utah has also hired a consulting firm, Ventura Partners, to help uncover a list of candidates.

The committee will be co-chaired by Patti Ross, the university’s chief strategy officer, and Manny Hendrix, the associate director for development for the athletics department. It also includes two other current athletic department employees:

  • Liz Abel, associate athletic director
  • Lynne Roberts, head coach of the women’s basketball team

Other members of the committee include the following:

  • Lisa Eccles, philanthropist
  • Christian Gardner, university trustee
  • Jeff Herring, chief human resource officer
  • Harriet Hopf, interim associate vice president for faculty and professor of anesthesiology
  • Karen Paisley, associate dean, College of Health
  • David Parkin, university trustee
  • Robert Payne, associate general counsel
  • Robert Pendleton, associate professor of medicine and chief medical quality officer
  • Gordon Wilson, associate vice president for administrative services
  • Nate Orchard, a former Utah football player currently in the NFL.
