College Coaching Moves: Penn men's coach Fuller takes AD position

Rudy Fuller, the Penn men's coach the past 20 years, has been been named the Ivy League school's senior associate athletic director.

Penn had just one winning season in the 13 years prior to Fuller's arrival. Since then, the Quakers won seven Philadelphia Soccer Six championships, reached the NCAA Tournament four times (2002, 2008, 2010, 2013) and won three Ivy League titles (2002, 2008, 2013).
In 2002, Matthew Haefner was named Penn’s first-ever Ivy League Player of the Year and the first All-American since 1984. Duke Lacroix was named Penn’s first Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year in 2013.

Fuller, who spent the past year as the special adviser to the athletic director, will oversee the 33 intercollegiate sports Penn offers. The three sports he will concentrate on are football and men’s and women’s basketball. In addition, he'll oversee compliance, student development and sports performance.
