Jerry Koloskie named UNLV’s interim AD

Senior Associate Athletics Director Jerry Koloskie — who had been UNLV's acting AD in the wake of Mike Hamrick's departure last month — was named interim athletics director on Thursday morning.

UNLV President Neal Smatresk plans a formal process to find Hamrick's permanent successor.

Koloskie has worked in the athletics department for 26 years, serving in his senior associate AD post for the last 10 years. His responsibilities have included overseeing all internal functions and working as the sport administrator for men's and women's basketball, track and field, cross country and baseball. He also ran the daily operations of UNLV's athletics training, strength and conditioning and athletics equipment departments.

  2. Congratulations to Jerry K! He's a class act and UNLV is lucky to have him!

  3. Don't let him in front of the camera or in front of the boosters. If you have a sore ankle, go to Jerry K. If you have a department to run... OH MY GOD what are they thinking?

    That's it? I was expecting a lot more than that from you. Your "clipboard" of cut and paste talking points about UNLV must have been erased on your computer. Try harder next time.
