Reshauna Cobb has been hired as senior associate athletics director for internal operations and senior woman administrator, according to a release from Boston College Athletics.
Cobb will assume the role after the departure of Jocelyn Gates, who was hired by Ohio State in June of this year. Cobb formerly served as the director of academic and membership affairs at the NCAA, where she had worked since 2009. There, she oversaw the team that handles processes related to Division I academic legislation and oversaw the Division I Academic Performance Program.
“I cannot wait to engage with our student-athletes, coaches, and administrators to support the exceptional work being done,” Cobb said in a release from BCEagles.com.
While at the NCAA, Cobb also served as a liaison to both the Division I Committee on Academics, which manages the NCAA’s academic policy and strategy, and the Division I Strategic Vision and Planning Committee, in charge of administrative work related to business, governance, and legal affairs.
Cobb is the second major hire under Athletics Director Pat Kraft after the hiring of Earl Grant in March of this year.
“She brings a wealth of knowledge to the position not only from her time at the NCAA but also has a strong knowledge of the ACC from previous stops at Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech,” Kraft said in the release.
Her knowledge of the ACC comes from working in compliance positions at both Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech. A graduate of Clemson, Cobb is no stranger to ACC competition.
“I am excited to join Pat Kraft and the entire Boston College team,” Cobb said in the release.
