Barnes announced as Athletic Director

The University of Pittsburgh announced Scott Barnes as its 13th athletic director Friday, completing a four-month long search after Steve Pederson's departure from the program in December.

The University of Pittsburgh has it new athletic director, the school announced Friday. Scott Barnes, recently of Utah State, will take the reins of Pitt Athletics beginning July 1.

Barnes, named the 2014 Under Armour Athletic Director of the year Year and developed a reputation for success in both athletics and fundraising at Utah State. He brings 26 years of collegiate administrative experience to Pitt.

"Athletics play an important role in the life of the University and in Scott Barnes we have found a person who understands the role that athletics play and who also recognizes the primacy of academics," Chancellor Patrick Gallagher said in a release. "Scott clearly shares our belief that we should pursue excellence in all that we do and that a student can be good in both athletics and academics."

The search was performed by a 14-person committee led by interim athletic director Dr. Randy Juhl, Pitt's Vice Chancellor for Research and Conduct Compliance. Barnes was a unanimous choice by the recommending candidates, per a release.

“We had an exceptionally strong pool of well-qualified candidates and Scott Barnes stood out in that group," Juhl said in a release. "In addition to having outstanding managerial ability and experience in athletics, he is also someone who can provide strong leadership and instill confidence in the diverse group of stakeholders involved in our athletic programs.”

During his seven years, the Aggies won 20 conference championships, moved from the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) into the Mountain West and posted an 87 percent Graduation Success Rate with the school reporting a 3.17 grade point average from its student-athletes in the 2013-14 school year.

Barnes helped lead Utah State's football program to its winningest season in 2012 and three consecutive bowl wins since that season. In 114 years of competition prior, the Aggies had won just one bowl game.

Under Barnes, the Aggies received record donations. A $5.25 million gift for a new basketball facility, another $3.7 million for a sports performance center servicing 16 sports and $2.5 million was added to the football program's private fund during his tenure.

While Barnes brought money in, he was also efficient with the athletic department's budget. A 2009 study conducted by Texas A&M's Laboratory for the Study of Intercollegiate Athletics concluded the Aggies has the most economically-efficient athletic department in the nation and Utah State has finished in the Top 20 each year since.

"Chancellor Gallagher's vision for excellence across all facets of this great university, including athletics, is impressive and makes Pitt an exciting place to be for myself and my family," Barnes said. "Pitt's exceptional student-athletes and coaches, loyal fan base and storied history are true assets that we can build on together."
