UM hires Craig Anderson as its new compliance director

The University of Miami announced the hiring of Craig Anderson as the athletic program's new Associate Athletic Director for Compliance on Wednesday.

Anderson will begin in March. He spent the previous two-plus years at NC State as the Assistant AD for Compliance. At NC State, he was charged with many roles, including monitoring all amateurism and eligibility issues, serving as the liaison to the academic support program for student-athletes, monitoring all initial eligibility/continuing eligibility processes and conducting NCAA rules education for coaches, staff, boosters and general public according to a UM press release.

"Craig brings tremendous experience as a compliance professional, having spent several years within the ACC," Senior Associate AD for Administration and Student Excellence Jennifer Strawley said in the statement released by UM. "He shares our philosophy that compliance focuses on building trust and operating with integrity in all we do. Craig is a rising star in the compliance profession and we are thrilled that he will be overseeing the day to day operations of our compliance staff."

Anderson replaces David Reed, who left for the University of Kansas back in November. Anderson also spent three years at Virginia and began his career at UNLV.
