Ken­tucky’s Peevy named DePaul AD

Chicago Sun-Times - - BY THE NUMBERS -

DePaul hired Ken­tucky deputy ath­letic di­rec­tor De­Wayne Peevy to be its new AD, ef­fec­tive Sept. 1.

Peevy will re­place Jean Lenti Pon­setto, who is re­tir­ing af­ter a 45-year ca­reer at the univer­sity. She has served as DePaul’s AD for the last 18 years and an­nounced her re­tire­ment in June.

Peevy, who was at Ken­tucky for 12 years, has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in all ar­eas of col­lege ath­let­ics, with a spe­cial fo­cus on men’s bas­ket­ball.

‘‘I am hon­ored and hum­bled to ac­cept the po­si­tion of di­rec­tor of ath­let­ics at DePaul,’’ Peevy said in a state­ment. ‘‘DePaul is a proud and tra­di­tion-rich ath­letic depart­ment built on the foun­da­tion of a strong mis­sion in a di­verse ur­ban com­mu­nity. My fam­ily and I are all ex­cited and en­er­gized to join the Blue De­mon fam­ily.’’
