Ogden • Weber State on Wednesday announced that the school has named Tim Crompton as its new athletic director, a role he has filled as the interim AD since May 2019.

“Tim is a perfect fit for Weber State,” said Norm Tarbox, who oversees the WSU Athletics Department, in a news release. “He knows the community and the campus. He knows good coaching. He’s committed to help our student-athletes reach their potential on the field and in the classroom. And he bleeds purple.”

Crompton previously coached WSU women’s soccer for 15 years.

“I’m honored for the opportunity to work with the wonderful student-athletes at Weber State,” Crompton said in the news release. “Our student-athletes graduate with a sense of pride and accomplishment having done something they may not have thought possible when they arrived as freshmen. With tremendous support from faculty, coaches, staff and administration, students are given the opportunity to earn an education that opens up countless options for their future.”

Crompton said he looks forward to continue supporting student-athletes’ success in the classroom and in competition. He wants to build on successes such as the 2018-19 Big Sky Conference Presidents’ Cup, which is awarded annually for a combination of academic progress, grade point average, team standings in the regular season, and championship play. Weber State holds five Big Sky Presidents’ Cup titles — the most in league history.

The volleyball team advanced to the Big Sky Tournament finals and qualified for the NIVC postseason tournament.

Football won its third-straight Big Sky title and advanced to the FCS playoffs for the fourth-straight season.
