McCallister named associate AD

From the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics

Athletic Director William C. Martin has named Megan McCallister senior women’s administrator and associate athletic director for the Wolverines. She joins the Michigan athletic staff after a four-year stint at the University of Dayton as an associate athletic director and senior women’s administrator.

At Michigan, McCallister will supervise Olympic sports and their game management. She also will supervise summer camps, band/cheerleaders, and strength and conditioning while representing Michigan as the NCAA and Big Ten representative administrator.

“I am looking forward to working with some of the finest coaches and student-athletes in the country,” said McCallister. “I consider it a privilege to be a part of the rich tradition of academic and athletic excellence at Michigan.

“It is very exciting for me to have the opportunity to make a positive impact at Michigan.”

At Dayton, McCallister led the activities of the Marketing Work Group, which includes athletics communications, customer service, customer information, marketing, ticket sales, promotions and the premium seating program.

In 1999–2000, the Marketing Work Group helped Dayton’s Athletics Division generate the most revenue ever from both sports program events and corporate partners. Corporate partnership revenue increased 37 percent in one year and the Flyers men’s basketball team achieved the highest average attendance since the 1970–71 season. McCallister’s other responsibilities included sport program administration for women’s basketball and volleyball and the management of all corporate contracts and agreements.

McCallister is a former member of the U. S. Women’s National Volleyball Team, competing in the Pan American Games, World University Games and World Championships. As a student-athlete at the University of Southern California, McCallister was a three-time All-Pacific-10 Conference selection as the Trojans made three NCAA tournament appearances. She also was named USC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1990 and 1991. Prior to Dayton, McCallister served as top assistant volleyball coach at the University of Wisconsin.

McCallister is a native of Manhattan Beach, Calif. As a prep athlete there, she was named the Reebok National Player of the Year for 1986.
