After working more than six years as the director of athletic advancement in the Division of University Advancement, Adam McGuirt took over the role as associate athletics director for internal operations in December of 2013.
McGuirt's new role includes the oversight of facilities, event management and all capital improvements within the athletic department. He assists in the scheduling, supervision and administration of all athletic facilities while also maintaining relationships with campus constituents, campus security, visiting groups and outside organizations.
He is also a member of Athletic Director Tommy McClelland's senior staff and serves as the sports supervisor for women's soccer.
One of his main responsibilities is the oversight of the construction of the $20 million south end zone facility at Joe Aillet Stadium. Construction on the 70,000-plus square foot, three-story building began in April and should be operational by August, 2015.
During his previous role in athletic advancement, McGuirt was responsible for all areas of athletic development, including donor relations and all aspects of the Louisiana Tech Athletic Club (LTAC).
McGuirt was instrumental in helping more than double the number of LTAC members which resulted in a large increase in private donations.
McGuirt also worked closely with the Louisiana Tech Alumni Association in the development and implementation of events for alumni and friends throughout the state of Louisiana and surrounding areas.
McGuirt has been a part of a staff at LA Tech that helped the University garner an invitation to join Conference USA, a membership which began July 1, 2013. That same staff has been instrumental in garnering a number of national awards, including the 2010 Turnkey PRISM Award - which recognizes colleges for managerial excellence across four areas: marketing/branding; fan development; community relations; and customer/client service.
The Tech Athletics Department also finished in the Top 10 three times in the Excellence in Management Cup, which recognizes the most efficient athletic departments in the nation.
A native of Shreveport, McGuirt graduated from Louisiana Tech in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in business administration.
McGuirt is married to April, and the couple has three daughters: Lily, Sophie and Emily.
