Phelps will serve as the building manager and capital projects leader for all athletic facilities.
He also will assist administrative personnel for home football contests, perform administrative and budgetary functions, and serve as one of the liaisons between Athletics, Facility Services, campus special interest groups and outside contractors.
"I would like to thank Bob De Carolis and the search committee for this great opportunity to join Oregon State University," Phelps said. "My wife and I are honored to become members of Beaver Nation and be part of the rich tradition of OSU Athletics. With all of the exciting capital projects and improvements taking place, and planned for the future, I look forward to getting started."
Phelps arrives in Corvallis from Stony Brook University in New York, where he has served since 2010 as the Associate Director of Athletics for Facility and Event Operations. Prior to that, starting in 2008, he held the title of Assistant Director of Athletics for Facility and Event Operations for the America East Conference institution.
While at Stony Brook he was part of a senior management team that supported the administration in strategic planning, policy development, budget and facility planning.
Phelps began his intercollegiate career at Middlebury College in Vermont in 1995 as an assistant men's basketball coach. He left the coaching profession to be the facilities and operations coordinator for Middlebury for four years before accepting a similar position at Yale University in 2001.
From 2002-2008 he held several titles at Brown University, the last three years as Assistant Athletic Director for Operations.
He is a 1995 graduate of Ithaca College in New York with a bachelor's of science degree in physical education.
