Justin Farrell (Dickinson '13) has returned to his alma mater accepting the position of Assistant Athletic Director of Marketing & Administration. Starting in early September, Farrell has taken over the direction of the Red Devil Sports Network and will work primarily with video production, broadcasting, social media and the marketing of Dickinson's 25 intercollegiate sports programs.
"I am beyond excited to return to Dickinson and be back on the campus of my alma mater. Wearin' the Red is special and to be able to do that as a player and now as an administrator is extremely humbling", said Farrell. "I would like to thank Athletic Director Joel Quattrone and the entire Dickinson Athletic Department for this special opportunity to not just return to Dickinson but to return home."
Quattrone also expressed excitement upon Farrell's return. "We are thrilled to welcome Justin back to campus. He is a very proud alumni and is excited to put his stamp on the marketing and promotion of each of our programs. Following his interview, Justin proved to be a perfect fit!"
Farrell comes most recently from Salisbury University where he served as the Assistant Director of Sports Information since 2016. During his time at Salisbury he worked with some of the top programs in Division III athletics and brings a strong background of promoting and marketing successful teams.
Prior to joining the Salisbury staff, Farrell spent a year as the Director of Sports Information at Eastern University and gained additional experience in collegiate athletics working in the sports information office at Ursinus College.
He has worked as a production assistant with the Comcast Sports Group and 97.5 The Fanatic and was a staff writer for Phillylacrosse.com from 2014-2016.
A 2013 graduate of Dickinson, Farrell was a member of the Red Devil football team and worked as a sportswriter for the Dickinsonian during his time as an undergrad. He was also actively involved in broadcasting, providing play-by-play announcing and color commentary for many Red Devil sports.
After earning a degree in history with a minor in economics from Dickinson, Farrell received a master's degree in Business Administration from the University of Maryland University College earlier this year.
"I look forward to bringing my new ideas and philosophies to the coaches, student-athletes, and, Dickinson as a whole while also helping the Red Devils achieve a whole new level of greatness in Division III Athletics," added Farrell.
