Carrie A. Doyle joined NC State in November 2010 as Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance, and was named Senior Associate AD in November 2011. She came to the Wolfpack program after spending six and a half 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.
She began her duties at New Hampshire in July 2004 as the Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance. In August 2006, she was promoted to Senior Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance.
Doyle oversaw the data collection and analysis of the NCAA's institutional Graduation Success Rate (GSR), the Academic Progress Rate (APR), and IPEDS (Federal Graduation Rate data), which are reported annually to the NCAA and Department of Education. Doyle spearheaded the development of a computer program that automates the annual data collection for each of these reports, as well as a computer "bridge" program that automatically downloads data from the university's Banner mainframe into the NCAA Compliance Assistant database, thus saving time and increasing accuracy of these data collection processes.
As the department's Senior Woman Administrator, Doyle served on the department's senior management team and was responsible for the department's compliance with Title IX and gender equity issues. Doyle was an integral part of the effort in 2004 and 2005 that closed the University's 10-year long monitoring case with the Department of Civil Rights, and helped to bring the University into full compliance with Title IX (in 2006-07).
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. During Doyle's seven years as an investigator, she processed 10 cases: seven cases were presented in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions and three cases were processed by summary disposition. As the Director of Student-Athlete Reinstatement, 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).
Doyle served for two years on the 30-person NCAA Division I Legislative Council (2008-2010) representing the America East Conference, which is the body in the NCAA structure primarily responsible for adopting and defeating legislative proposals, and this group reports directly to the NCAA Board of Directors. She also served on the Division I Amateurism Fact Finding Committee (2006-2009), which resolves factual issues related to Eligibility Center amateurism cases.
Doyle is a 1982 graduate of The State University of New York, College at Cortland (B.S. in education), where she was a 4-year softball student-athlete. Doyle then spent five years at the University of Iowa where she earned her M.A. in Athletics Administration, and a M.B.A. while serving a 2-year stint as a Graduate Assistant Softball Coach.
