Littlepage is named U.Va. athletic director

Craig Littlepage was named athletics director on Aug. 21, the first African American in the ACC to hold the post. He succeeds Terry Holland, who stepped down at the end of May to become a special assistant to U.Va. President John T Casteen III. Littlepage, 50, has served as interim director since June and also did so for six months in 1995. Littlepage has been a member of the U.Va. athletics administration since 1990, most recently as senior associate director.

A 1973 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School in economics, he has had extensive collegiate coaching experience. He was head men’s basketball coach at Penn (1982-85) and Rutgers (1985-88) and an assistant coach at Villanova, Yale and, for eight years, at U.Va. under Holland (1976-82 and 1988-90).
