William Carey Athletic Director Shines Positive Light on University Athletics

Posted: Updated:

 

William Carey University continues to gain positive recognition, in large part to the success of its athletic program.

"Through athletics we can promote our school throughout the country," says William Carey athletic director Steve Knight.

That's because with an athletic director like Steve Knight, William Carey keeps finding success in seemingly every sport, year in and year out.

"You can just see about the success we've had with our sports, and the amount of sports that we've gained over the past couple years. I think he's doing a great job," says William Carey head women's soccer coach Danny Owens.

Owens applauds Knight in the way he leads the program.

"He has really good people working underneath him, and he allows us to do a job, and I think that shows in the success that we've had moving forward."

Knight attributes much of that success to his staff.

"We have hired some very good head coaches, and it starts there. They know the expectations that the school puts on our coaches and our student athletes."

Knight was named Athletic Director of the Year for the Southern States Athletic Conference on Monday. 

Knight is also the 2013 SSAC Men's Basketball Coach of the Year.

He says assuming both roles isn't easy.

"It's tough, being an athletic director and a head coach."

He looks forward to the challenge of building on this year's success in his 32nd year with the university.

"It's going to be difficult, but we're sure going to try."
