Holliday: Duke AD Kevin White discusses football

— Duke University President Richard H. Brodhead announced Wednesday the school and Vice President and Director of Athletics Kevin White have agreed to a contract extension through June 30, 2021.

“Duke is fortunate to have an athletic director of the caliber of Kevin White,” said Brodhead. “Kevin’s national leadership role in college athletics has earned him widespread respect and admiration. At Duke, we appreciate Kevin’s deep understanding of Duke’s values, his vision for collegiate athletics, and his commitment to building excellence in our student-athletes, both on the field and in the classroom.”

White, 63, joined Duke after leading Notre Dame’s athletics program from 2000-08. He also has held a number of prominent national leadership roles within intercollegiate athletics, including his service in 2006-07 as president of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and in 2005-06 as president of the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association.

In 2013, White was named one of four NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision recipients of the Under Armour AD of the Year Award presented by NACDA. In 2014, White earned multiple awards, including the National Football Foundation’s John L. Toner award and the Sport Business Journal’s Athletic Director of the Year award.

"It is an absolute honor to continue my career at Duke University,” said White. “Certainly, this is a rare institution that represents the very best of both academics and athletics. Even through times of constant change in college athletics, we are completely committed to the uncompromising excellence that defines Duke University. Simply put, Jane and I are both humbled and thrilled to continue our Duke journey for many more years.”

Since White’s arrival, Duke has captured six NCAA Championships – women’s tennis in 2009, men’s basketball in 2010, men’s lacrosse in 2010, 2013 and 2014, and women’s golf in 2014 – and 17 ACC titles.

Academically, Duke teams continued strong performances under White. In the 2014 spring semester, 25 of 26 Blue Devil varsity teams earned grade point averages of 3.0 or better and more than 86 made the Dean’s List, while 474 Duke student-athletes made the All-ACC Honor Roll (led ACC for the 25th time in the last 26 years).

In two key elements in tracking a department’s academic success, Duke ranked among the nation’s best again. Duke posted a 98% Graduation Success Rate (GSR) and 16 teams achieved a 100% GSR.
