Newberry College announced that it has named Matt Finley as their new athletics director on Monday effective immediately.  Finley was the school’s associate athletic director for compliance and academic services before becoming the interim athletics director after Brad Edwards left to take the job at Jacksonville University.

“I’m honored and humbled to be selected as Newberry College’s athletics director,” Finley said. “I’ve enjoyed my work with Newberry’s student-athletes, coaches, administration, faculty and staff, and I look forward to this opportunity to lead our athletic department. I would like to thank everyone in the community for their support of this great College, and I would especially like to thank Dr. Scherrens and the search committee for their diligence in this process over the past few months.”

Finley was selected from a group of 130 applicants.
