After an 11-month search, Long Beach State announced that Andy Fee will become the new Athletics Director.

Fee will replace Vic Cegles, who left for the University of Connecticut.

“I am honored and thrilled to join Long Beach State University as its new Director of Athletics. I am grateful for the support of President Conoley, search committee chair Andrea Taylor and all those who were involved in the process,” Andy Fee said in the press release. “I am looking forward to building on the already successful foundation at Long Beach State and engaging the entire campus and community, to work together to fulfill the bold vision for Long Beach State Athletics. I was impressed and inspired at every turn during the search process with those who shared their love and commitment to Long Beach State.”

The new AD will have now look to fill the women’s basketball head coach position after Jody Wynn took the vacancy at the University of Washington. Fee served as the University of Santa Barbara’s Senior Associate Athletics Director for Development & Principal Gifts before being named the Deputy Athletics Director/Chief Development Officer on Nov. 10, 2016.

“Andy brings a wealth of experience and energy to Long Beach State,” said President Jane Close Conoley. “His vision for the future of our athletics program provides me confidence that he will build on the many successes we have had over the years and he will take our student-athletes to the next level, athletically and academically.”

We will update this story as details emerge.
