GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Mary Ellen Gillespie, who on Oct. 17 was named the Director of Athletics for Green Bay Athletics, will be formally introduced by UW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden at a press conference on Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. in the Special Events Room at the Kress Events Center. 

Tuesday’s press conference will also be streamed live on the Horizon League Network.

Gillespie, who will begin her duties Dec. 2, currently serves as associate athletics director for external relations at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. She has spent the last seven years with Bowling Green, a Division I school of about 20,000 students located in far northwest Ohio, just south of Toledo. She joined the program in 2006 as director of major gifts for intercollegiate athletics and was promoted to assistant athletics director for development in 2007. Gillespie was promoted to associate athletics director for external relations in June 2010.

Gillespie will be the eighth person to hold supervisory responsibility for intercollegiate athletics in the history of the Green Bay program. The others were Donald Makuen (1969-70), Dean Austin (1970-73), Bruce Grimes (1973-82), Donald Harden (1982-85), Daniel Spielmann (1985-94), Dennis “Otis” Chambers (1994-2001), and Ken Bothof (2002-2013). Bothof left the Green Bay program this past summer to accept a similar position at Northern Kentucky University.
