Wofford College appointed Scott Kull as the school’s next athletic director, effective April 1, 2024.

Kull is the deputy athletics director for external affairs and executive director of the University of North Carolina Charlotte Athletics Foundation. He has held similar positions at the University of Utah, the University of South Florida, Florida State, and Texas Christian University.

Kull has 31 years of intercollegiate athletics experience, including strategic planning, student-athlete wellbeing, athletics marketing and media relations, departmental leadership, financial affairs, compliance and risk management, corporate sponsorship, licensing, ticket sales, emerging technologies, and facilities and event management. 

In 2019, the Sports Business Journal  recognized Kull as a “power player.”

“Scott Kull is eager to share his extensive expertise in NCAA Division I athletics with the Terriers, and we are eager for his leadership and direction as we continue our emphasis on the student-athlete model and the role athletics plays in enhancing the overall student experience at Wofford College,” said Wofford College President Nayef Samhat. “He will lead a team of talented student-athletes and committed coaches and athletics staff, and I look forward to watching him build relationships with our community.”

“I am incredibly grateful to President Samhat for this unbelievable opportunity,” offered Kull. “Wofford and its student-athletes represent everything that’s right about intercollegiate athletics. It’s a perfect fit of rigorous academic standards, highly competitive athletics and phenomenal facilities. When walking on campus, I could feel the pride everyone has in being a Wofford Terrier.”

A former NCAA DIII student-athlete who participated in football and track, Kull holds a bachelor’s degree from Otterbein College and a master’s degree from The Ohio State University.
