East Tennessee State University. Sports Information Office


The Sports Information Office was created c. 1963 and operated under the University Relations Office at East Tennessee State University. Bill Captain served as the director from 1963 to 1968. The present director, John Cathey was appointed in 1969. In July 1985 the office was placed under the office of the Athletic Director.

The Sports Information Office functions both as a record keeper of statistics on athletes and as a public relations representative for the athletic department. This office is responsible for keeping play-by-play statistics on the athletes participating in each game and for releasing half- time statistics. In addition, the Sports Information Office writes the press releases and publishes brochures for the athletic programs at East Tennessee State University.

The office is presently located in room 146 of the Memorial Center.
