|Wisconsin’s Sean Frazier first black chair of NCAA hockey committee||08.05.11 at 12:06 pm ET|
The NCAA announced Thursday that University of Wisconsin deputy athletic director (and former New England college athletics administrator) Sean T. Frazier was named chair of the Division 1 men’s hockey committee. He will take over for Providence College AD Robert Driscoll on Sept. 1.
“It is an honor to be named chair of such a prestigious committee,” Frazier said. “We are currently in a time of great opportunity in college hockey, and I look forward to leading the sport though this period of evolution.”
Frazier has worked for Wisconsin athletics since 2007, rising from associate athletic director for events and facilities to senior associate athletic director of operations in 2009. He became deputy AD in April 2011.
Prior to Wisconsin, Frazier served as AD for Merrimack College, Clarkson University and Manhattanville College. Before then, he held several positions at the University of Maine, where he got his master’s in higher education leadership.
A Long Island, N.Y., native, Frazier got his bachelor’s in communication at the University of Alabama, playing football for the school’s 1989 SEC championship team.
