UT's David Blackburn Interviews For UTC A.D. Job
Chattanooga-(WDEF) UTC has started brining in their three finalists for the athletic director's job. Monday, the University interviewed Vols senior associate athletic director David Blackburn. Blackburn grew up in Loudon, and he said he's familiar with the Chattanooga sports scene. And as far as UTC athletics is concerned, Blackburn kept referencing the department's growth potential. Said Blackburn,"With about half the alums living in the area after they graduate from here, Hamilton county or surrounding areas, there's a lot of potential and a lot of growth to reach out to people."
Reporter-"You've mentioned growth potential a lot." Said Blackburn,"I have. I really feel strongly that UTC is poised. You've certainly seen it on the institutional side. The town has seen that. I think in the athletics department it is ready to take another step as far as revenue and resource."
