Brodbeck hired as SID at Holy Cross College
NOTRE DAME, Ind. — The Holy Cross College Athletic Department recently announced the hiring of John Brodbeck as the school’s new sports information director.
Brodbeck returns to Holy Cross College, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business in 2010. Upon completion of undergraduate study, Brodbeck attended Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Ind., to pursue, and eventually receive, a Master of Science degree in Sports Administration.
While at Valpo, Brodbeck worked as an assistant in the sports media relations department.
“While at Valpo, I felt that I gained great hands-on experience of what to expect coming into this job,” he said. “The opportunity to spend two years working in the media relations department was something I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to do.”
During his time at Valpo, Brodbeck assisted in coverage of football and women’s softball. During the 2012 Horizon League men’s basketball tournament, Brodbeck was responsible for setting up the media room, providing all media members access to the post-game press-conferences and creating transcripts available to all outside media members.
A Stillwater native, Brodbeck has spent most of the past five years living in northern Indiana.
“I’m very excited to come back to the place where it all began,” he said. “Holy Cross has been so good to me throughout my time as a student and an alum. I’m very eager and excited to get started on my career path, and I’m very thankful that I get to begin this journey at Holy Cross.”
“John will be a valuable new addition to our staff,” said Athletic Director Bob Schermerhorn. “His willingness to obtain a Master’s Degree in Sports Administration demonstrates his dedication to the field of athletic administration. He will be an exceptional addition to our athletic staff. All I can say is welcome home, John.”
John currently lives in Mishawaka, Ind., and has a younger brother, Drew, who is a junior on the Holy Cross College hockey team.
