Utah athletic director Mark Harlan on Monday reorganized his executive staff by promoting Kyle Brennan to Chief Operating Officer/Deputy Athletics Director for Internal Operations and naming Scott Kull Deputy Athletics Director for External Operations.
Kull was Harlan’s deputy A.D. at the University of South Florida from 2016-18 and has been serving as USF’s interim athletics director since Harlan departed for Utah in June.
“Kyle Brennan has been invaluable, not only to me, but to everyone in Utah athletics during the transition period between (former AD) Chris Hill’s retirement and my appointment as Utah’s director of athletics,” Harlan said in a news release.
He added: “Scott Kull brings a wealth of college athletics administration experience and did a great job as our deputy athletics director at USF for the last two years. He will be a tremendous addition to our team and I was thrilled Scott wanted to join us here at Utah.”
Under the new organization umbrella, Brennan will manage the day-to-day internal operations of Utah athletics, including compliance, facilities, equipment, event management, finance, human resources and academic support, as well as overseeing sport supervisors. Kull will supervise development, communications, marketing, ticketing, multi-media, branding, licensing and alumni relations.
Brennan and Kull are reuniting at Utah, having previously worked together at TCU in 2005-06—Brennan as the compliance director and Kull as the associate athletics director for external operations.
