Joe Alleva is on his way out as the Athletics Director at LSU.
LSU said, “LSU and Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva today announced he is stepping down from his current position and is transitioning to a new role as special assistant to the president for donor relations.”
Alleva will remain Athletic Director until a new person is chosen for the position.
“We are grateful to Joe for his years of service and dedication to LSU,” said LSU President F. King Alexander. “Under his leadership, LSU Athletics has become even more nationally competitive and our student-athletes have reached new levels of academic achievement.”
Alleva has been the AD at LSU for over ten years.
“The eleven years Annie and I have been here in Baton Rouge have been some of the best in our lives,” said Alleva. “We have made lifelong friends and memories in Louisiana. This is truly a special place. It’s been an honor to serve LSU, and I am proud to continue to do that in a new role.”
LSU athletics has been successful during Alleva’s time as Athletic Director.
Over the last eleven years, the Tigers won 18 SEC titles and 124 individual SEC Championships.
Before making his way to LSU, Alleva was the AD at Duke from 1998-2008.
