The Volpe Report with U of Scranton's Athletic Director, Dave Martin
On May 13, 2018, the Volpe Report's guest was Dave Martin, the Athletic Director at the University of Scranton.
Dave became the eighth Director of Athletics in the University of Scranton’s history in August 2015. Dave came to the University after serving an 11 year tenure as Director of Athletics at Misericordia University.
He also spent 14 seasons at Misericordia as head men’s basketball coach and served as associate director of athletics and coordinator of athletic recruiting.
Dave was recently awarded the division 3 UnderArmor athletic director of the year award presented by the national association of collegiate director of athletics.
He has also been very active at the national level serving on the NCAA Men’s basketball committee and was chairmen of the NCAA women’s basketball committee this past season.
Dave has made an immediate impact in his new position at the University of Scranton being a driving force behind the $14 million dollar Reverend Kevin P. Quinn athletic facility. This magnificent structure had its grand opening this past Tuesday and provides the university with state of the art facilities, which include, a soccer field, which is also home to field hockey and lacrosse, a women’s softball field as well as a men’s baseball field. The construction company that built the facilities and installed the turf rated them the equal of any division one athletic fields that they had installed across the country.
Dave received his undergraduate degree from Wilkes University and a master of education degree from Misericordia University. He and his wife, Jennifer reside in Dunmore with their three daughters.
