PITTSBURGH: Chatham University announced today the hiring of Leonard Trevino as the Director of Athletics. As Director of Athletics, Trevino will oversee the university’s NCAA Division III athletic program, which includes eight women’s and six men’s sports that are launching their inaugural seasons in the 2015-2016 academic year.
Trevino comes to Chatham from Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland where he served as Associate Athletic Director and Head Men’s Basketball Coach. As Associate Athletic Director, Trevino oversaw staffing and hiring, team scheduling, operations of the sports and recreation center, corporate fundraising and budgeting.
Trevino joins Chatham and Chatham Athletics at a historic time with the integration of men on campus in the fall of 2015. Trevino states, “I am truly honored to be apart of Chatham’s athletics during this period of excitement and momentum. As Chatham embarks upon this transition, I look forward to strengthening and solidifying the success in Chatham’s women’s sports programs, while simultaneously launching and growing competitive and successful men’s programs.”
Trevino acted as the first, and only, head coach for the Goucher men’s basketball team, constructing the program from the ground up. With its inception in 1990, the Gophers won 20 games and lost 52 in the first three seasons, but under Trevino, then went on to achieve a 130-60 winning record over seven seasons with a winning percentage of .684. In his fourth season, Trevino led the men’s basketball team to a 17-9 record and won the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) title.
