USCB names new Director of Athletics

The University of South Carolina Beaufort has appointed Quin Monahan as its Director of Athletics, Chancellor Dr. Jane T. Upshaw announced.
Monahan comes to USCB after two years as Director of Athletics at Belmont Abbey College, an NCAA Division II institution outside Charlotte, N.C. Prior to that, he was the Director of Athletics at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) from 2008-10 after previously serving as SCAD’s Associate Director of Athletics (2003-08) and Coordinator of Academic Advising (2001-03).
During his time at Belmont Abbey, Monahan was charged with overseeing 18 varsity programs and five junior varsity programs involving more than 400 student-athletes and leading 28 full-time and 12 part-time coaches and staff members. He made it a point at Belmont Abbey to rebuild the relationship between athletics and other campus departments, reestablished the Crusader Club fundraising organization and increased corporate sponsorship.
Monahan is no stranger to the USCB athletics staff, because he served as Associate Director of Athletics at SCAD at the time USCB launched its intercollegiate athletics program and was a trusted adviser in aiding with the school’s transition into the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and The Sun Conference.
“USCB is pleased to have someone of Quin Monahan’s experience as the Director of Athletics,” Dr. Upshaw said. “Quin served as a member of the original evaluation team for USCB’s membership in the NAIA, so he has watched USCB’s athletics program grow and develop over the past six years. His knowledge of the Sun Conference coupled with his established national reputation for professional excellence made him the natural choice.”
