Brian-Quinn FULLERTON, Calif. -- Brian Quinn, former Athletics Director at Cal State Fullerton, will retire on January 19, 2013.  He has served as the Director from January, 2002 until July, 2012.  During his tenure the Titans captured 16 Big West championships, 24 post-season appearances and 1 national championship.  Numerous individuals competed in post-season, including an NCAA finalist in women’s track.  Men’s basketball competed in the NCAA post-season for the first time in 30 years and won the only conference title in school history.  Women’s volleyball won the first ever Big West Conference championship as well.  Baseball won the NCAA championship in 2004.  During his tenure, $ 5.5 million was raised.  Ticket sales were $4.2 million and marketing/trade was $3.0 million for a total of $12.7 million.  All of this was accomplished in the worst economic time in the University history.

Brian received a high honor by being named NCAA Division I Athletic Director of the Year in the West and was also the  President of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, Division IAAA.  He also served on the NCAA baseball committee and chaired the Big West baseball committee and the NCAA West region baseball committee.

Brian is a graduate of Loyola (Loyola Marymount University) and received his Master’s degree from Long Beach State, with graduate work in administration at the University of California, Irvine.  He has been inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame at both his high school and University where he was a top athlete in baseball and basketball.  He also served as the Athletics Director at Loyola Marymount University from 1985-98.
