Kevin Anderson, USMA Athletic Director

Mr. Kevin Anderson, West Point’s 26th Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. This follows his stint as the Exec. Assoc. Dir. For External Affairs at Oregon State, where his duties were numerous, including overseeing Oregon State’s highly successful football & men’s basketball programs. He becomes the first African American to hold the position of Athletic Director at USMA. Mr. Anderson’s resume is quite extensive & impressive. One of his goals is seven (7) wins, which will enable the football team to participate in a bowl! We wish him all the best!
