The University of Tennessee At Martin has new athletic leadership. Julio Freire, most recently senior associate athletics director for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, has been named athletics director for the UT- Martin.

An advisory search committee chose from among four finalists and recommended Freire for the position to Dr. Tom Rakes, university chancellor.

Freire will succeed Phil Dane, who will retire as the university’s athletics director effective at the end of this year.
