Oct. 29, 2010
RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State Director of Athletics Deborah A. Yow has announced two additions to the department's senior staff. Carrie Doyle has been named Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance, while Carrie Leger, who is currently the Director of NC State's Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes (ASPSA), will now serve as Associate Director of Athletics for Academics and Student Services.
"NC State Athletics is proud to have attracted two talented administrators, whose expertise will figure prominently in our efforts to elevate the entire program," said Yow. "I appreciate the excellent work of David Horning and the two search committees."
Doyle joins the Wolfpack program after spending the past six years as the Senior Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance and Senior Woman Administrator at the University of New Hampshire. At UNH, she was primarily responsible for the administration of more than $8 million of athletic scholarships, the eligibility certification process for approximately 525 student-athletes, and the education and monitoring of 70 coaches and 20 sports.
Doyle's athletics background includes a 12-year stint at the NCAA National Office from 1987-1999. She was an NCAA enforcement representative (investigator) on the association's enforcement staff for the first seven years, and then spent five years as the Director of Student-Athlete Reinstatement. In that position, Doyle was responsible for the administration of the reinstatement process and administrative review panel process, and was the primary staff liaison to the Division I, II and III Student-Athlete Reinstatement Subcommittees and the Division I, II and III Administrative Review Subcommittees (now called the Subcommittee for Legislative Relief).
A 1982 graduate of The State University of New York, College at Cortland (B.S. in education), Doyle earned her M.A. in Athletics Administration and M.B.A. from the University of Iowa.
Leger has served as the Director of ASPSA at NC State since August of 2008 and was a member of the ASPSA staff from 2001-07. She will serve as the point person for athletics regarding all academic issues, as well as supervising assigned sports, and partnering with Sports Medicine, Student Services and Housing. All student-related services are being placed under her direction.
In 2007-08, Leger served as the Associate Director for Membership Services at the NCAA, focusing primarily on implementation of Division I academic reform efforts, academic outreach, and the management of partnerships to various academic associations, including the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) and the National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletes (N4A).
Prior to joining the NC State staff, Leger spent four years as the Director of Academic Progress and Life Skills Development at Elon University where she also earned her Master's degree in Business Administration.
A native of Vernon, Conn., Leger earned her undergraduate degree in psychology from Towson University and participated on the gymnastics team. She qualified for the NCAA gymnastics tournament in 1993 and served as a team captain her junior year. She was recently inducted into the Towson Athletics Hall of Fame.
