McNeely named AD at Fairmont State

FAIRMONT — Tim McNeely, formerly the Tournament Director of The Greenbrier Classic, has been named the director of athletics at Fairmont State University effective April 1.

 

"We are very excited to announce Tim McNeely as our director of athletics," said Dr. Maria Rose. "Tim's leadership in running the world-renown Greenbrier Classic will certainly be of great value at Fairmont State in terms of organizing a staff and coaches, as well as business and marketing opportunities.  Tim's expertise as a lawyer will help guide the university through the complex NCAA rules and regulations, including Title IX compliance."

 

McNeely has been in charge of the PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic since the tournament’s inception in 2010. The tournament is annually broadcast nationally on CBS and considered one of the top stops on the PGA Tour and has attracted hundreds of thousands of spectators and brought in millions of dollars of economic impact into the state of West Virginia.

 

Prior to taking over the Greenbrier Classic, McNeely served as the Tournament Director for the PGA/Nationwide Tour's Pete Dye West Virginia Classic. He helped grow the tournament into the first "major" on the Nationwide Tour — the Nationwide Tour Players Cup — that featured the first-ever $1 million purse on that tour.

 

A native of Logan County, McNeely was a four-year letterman under coach Gale Catlett and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Sport Management in 1992. He continued his education in at the WVU College of Law and graduating in 1995.

 

In 1995 he joined the law firm of Pullin Fowler Flanagan Brown and Poe in Charleston. In 2000, McNeely became General Counsel of The West Virginia Development Office, and later became Deputy Director of the agency under the leadership of Executive Director David Satterfield during Governor Bob Wise's administration. It was at this time that McNeely was intricately involved in securing a new PGA Tour/Nationwide Tour event in Bridgeport — The Pete Dye West Virginia Classic; a nationally televised event on The Golf Channel. McNeely's career followed the PGA Tour lead as he started McNeely Sports and managed this new PGA Tour initiative.

 

McNeely resides in Lewisburg with his wife Sarah. They have three children — Griffin, Kendell, and Gray.
