Niagara University’s top athletic administrator has a new title.

The university announced Wednesday that Simon Gray, who has been the school’s athletic director since 2014, has been appointed associate vice president for athletics.

In Gray’s eight years as athletic director, Niagara has reached a 95% threshold in its Graduation Success Rate and its Academic Progress Rate, and athletes at Niagara have had at least a 3.0 collective grade-point average each year, according to a news release. Niagara has had 152 athletes earn all-conference honors, and the women’s swimming and diving team won the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship this year.

Gray is chair of the NCAA Division I men’s soccer committee, and this year was president of the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association.

Niagara’s athletic department has also set fundraising records in five of the last eight years, and Gray has overseen and managed nearly $5 million in campus and athletic-facilities enhancements, including the Gallagher Center and Dwyer Arena.

What?
Only programs who are terrible incessantly point to their academic success.

Literally no one cares about d1 sports and academic success.

Ironically, the AD has very little to do with academic success. Professors and advisors do.

Not listed on Simons rather thin list of accomplishments. Winning

There have been more lawsuits against sports teams at NU under his tenure than championships.

So does this mean he got a new position and will hire a new Athletic Director or is this the way they congratulate him with no bump in salary and more work to do. My guess is the former.

I care about academic success. Isn’t that the point? It’s a COLLEGE. Gray has run a clean program. Congratulations.

"Gray has run a clean program."

Pretty much, but he laid an egg when he hired Patrick Beilein.

The people running the Niagara Purple Eagles athletics department fail when your called Niagara Purple Eagles and the Purple Eagles basketball team don’t have a Purple basketball jersey that is failure. Niagara athletics department fails right with that total joke. Go back to Purple with White, Gold trim for away basketball jersey and White with Purple and Gold trim for home basketball jersey it isn’t that hard in my opinion. Go Purple Eagles! Let’s Go Buffalo
