The Atlantic 10 Conference has named Keith Gill, the outgoing Richmond athletics director, executive associate commissioner. Gill remains Richmond's athletics director until June 30.
Gill, who resigned from UR on May 10 after more than four years on the job, will oversee community relations for the A-10 men's basketball tournament, assist with the implementation of the conference's recently adopted five-year strategic plan and continue to represent the A-10 on the NCAA Council.
Gill has 22 years of experience in college athletics. He will work with commissioner Bernadette McGlade on the league's strategic goals and initiatives, as well as community relations and partnerships in Washington, D.C., host of the 2018 A-10 men's basketball tournament at the Verizon Center.
When Gill announced he was leaving UR, he noted the need to spend time with his partner, Tiffany Speaks, who lives in the Washington, D.C., area and has a medical issue.
"He is a nationally respected administrator who made a very difficult decision to relocate to Washington, D.C., for important family reasons," McGlade said of Gill in a league release. "I'm looking forward to working with Keith in this new role."
Gill was appointed to the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee, and his term begins in September.
"The chance to move back to D.C. and work to advance the goals of the Atlantic 10 is a perfect fit," Gill said in the release.
