Washington State Director of Athletics Patrick Chun announced the addition of Chris Park to the Cougars’ senior administrative staff Wednesday. He will begin his duties in Pullman later this month.

“Chris is another wonderful addition to our athletics team and will bring great energy and leadership to our external units,” said Chun. “We look forward to Chris positively impacting our student-athletes, university and community.”

Park will serve as WSU’s senior associate athletic director for external relations, overseeing communications, marketing, ticketing, creative services and video operations, while also serving as WSU’s liaison with IMG.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work at Washington State University, a premier academic and athletic institution within the Pac-12,” said Park. “Being able to work for and alongside the outstanding leadership of athletic director Pat Chun and President Schulz is a tremendous opportunity. The Park family cannot wait to join the wonderful Pullman and Washington State community. Go Cougs!”
