Jervey Named Methodist Sports Information Director
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - Methodist University Director of Athletics
McEvoy has announced the hiring of Nate Jervey as
Sports Information Director.
"We are pleased to have Nate Jervey join our staff,” McEvoy said. “As a former NCAA Division III student-athlete and most recently an Assistant SID at Washington and Lee University, he brings a high quality and well rounded SID experience to our university from both a national and regional perspective. Our coaching staff and student-athletes look forward to working with Nate in the years ahead."
Jervey has spent the last four years at Washington and Lee. While there, he served as the primary media contact at one time for 13 of the University's 24 sports, including 10 each of the last three years. Jervey has a wealth of experience beyond event management and press releases to include broadcasting and graphic design.
A nationally recognized NCAA Division III program, Washington and Lee hosted many NCAA events during Jervey's tenure and he worked as part of the host staff for men's lacrosse, women's lacrosse and women's soccer, while also traveling with baseball and volleyball teams to their respective NCAA sites. His experience should prove valuable as he is expected to serve as the media relations contact for the 2013 NCAA Division III Men's and Women's Golf Championships when Methodist hosts the event May 14-17 in Destin, Fla.
Prior to joining the Generals' staff, Jervey spent a year as Sports Information Assistant at University of Detroit Mercy where he had the opportunity to serve on the staff of the 2008 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Midwest Regional at Ford Field.
A Michigan native, Jervey essentially began his sports information career as a student assistant at Alma College while competing in football and basketball. He graduated in 2007 with bachelor of arts degrees in political science and history. On the gridiron, Jervey helped the Scots to a pair of Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association titles and was a Second Team All-MIAA selection at wide receiver as a senior.
"I would like to thank Bob McEvoy for extending me the opportunity to join the staff at Methodist University,” Jervey said. “I am excited to begin working with the outstanding staff and student-athletes at MU and am grateful for the opportunity to join such a well-respected institution."
