TUSCALOOSA, Ala.-- University of Alabama Athletics Director Mal Moore announced Wednesday that Chris King, 29, has been named the Tide’s new Associate Athletics Director for Compliance. King replaces Marie Robbins who was recently promoted to Senior Women’s Administrator.
King comes to Alabama after nearly four years as Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance at Central Florida.
“I am extremely pleased that Chris is joining us,” Moore said. “He is a bright and energetic young man who will work hard to continue to make adherence to rules and compliance an issue of vital importance at Alabama.”
“The name ‘Alabama’ certainly brings to mind championships and integrity and it is one of the top jobs in the country,” King said. “I very much look forward to getting on campus and going to work. Based on what Marie (Robbins) and Gene (Marsh) have already established, there is a strong compliance system in place. My job will be to strengthen what is already established.”
A 1994 graduate of Robert Morris College with a bachelor's degree in sports administration, King received his master's degree in educational leadership and supervision from Campbell University in 1997.
At UCF, King was responsible for the overall leadership and administration of the athletics compliance program and the student wellness programs within the department of athletics. King represented UCF athletics interests at NCAA, A-Sun and institutional championships.
