After being appointed to the position in late July 2014, the University of Bridgeport selected Anthony Vitti as UB's director of athletics on a permanent basis.
Vitti began working at UB in 2004. He most recently served as associate athletics director for business and compliance. He is replacing Jay Moran, who in August begins his new job as director of athletics at Southern Connecticut State University.
Vitti '03 is a University of Bridgeport alumnus and a former member of the baseball team. He earned his bachelor's in business at UB and holds a master's in sports business management from Manhattanville College.
"As a former athlete and alumnus, UB is special to me," he said. "I'm excited about the opportunity to continue to guide the department."
"Anthony's connection to UB Athletics is personal and professional. As a former Purple Knight, he has first-hand knowledge of the programs, and he's been a real key to growing our Department of Athletics," said University President Neil Salonen. "We're confident he'll continue to build on our recent successes and help the Purple Knights become even more competitive in D-II Athletics."
