UAM Names Keith Alexander Chief Operating Officer For Athletics

July 20th, 2018 by

UAM Sports LogoKeith Alexander, assistant executive director of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA), has been named chief operating officer for athletics at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.

Alexander will be charged with evaluating athletic facilities and working with Chancellor Karla Hughes to create a framework to support the university’s program in intercollegiate athletics.  “I am happy to find someone with Keith Alexander’s experience to provide leadership for our athletics operations,” said Hughes. “He has a broad background in education and athletics and is highly respected by Louisiana high school coaches and administrators.”

          Hughes indicated that UAM will begin a nationwide search for a director of athletics to work with Alexander to address strategic planning and financial stability for the athletics program. “Moving forward, we need someone who can establish solid relationships with our former players and alumni and develop new sources of revenue to help our student-athletes succeed, both on the playing field and in the classroom,” said Hughes.

          Alexander joined the LHSAA in 2008, serving as director of officials, chair of the sports medicine advisory committee, chair of sportsmanship hearings, and is responsible for the organization and administration of the state’s high school programs in cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field, powerlifting and swimming. He has served on the National Federation of State High School Associations football rules committee and secured the National Association of Sports Officials Summit for New Orleans.

          “I am excited by the opportunity to work with Chancellor Hughes as we begin a new era in athletics at UAM,” said Alexander. “This is a program with a rich tradition and I am excited about where we can go in the future.”

          Prior to his current position, Alexander was superintendent of the Hamburg District and superintendent of the Fountain Hill and Clairborne (La.) Parish Schools Boards. He also served as principal of Haynesville (La.) Junior and Senior High Schools, was supervisor of child welfare and attendance and purchasing agent for maintenance for the Claiborne School Board, and taught and coached in the Haynesville public schools.

          Alexander served on the executive committee of the LHSAA in 1998-99, has officiated football in the Gulf South Conference and is an observer of officials in the Great American Conference as well as the Arkansas Officials Association. He was chosen to officiate the 2007 All-American Football Game and has officiated state football championships in Arkansas in 2004, 2006 and 2007.
