Scott Eaton Director of Athletics
Office: BOK 133F Phone: (859) 572-5193 Email: eatons@nku.edu
Dr. Scott Eaton is entering his fourth year as the director of athletics at Northern Kentucky University. He assumed that role on July 27, 2009.
He serves as the direct sport administrator for men's and women's basketball while directing all aspects of the athletic department.
During Eaton's three years as NKU's director of athletics, the program has flourished and reached new heights in terms of community outreach, visibility and now, NCAA classification. Eaton played a major role in the athletics program's reclassification to NCAA Division I status, a move that is expected to generate more exposure for NKU and enhance the branding of the university.
With Eaton spearheading the Division I effort and possible league affiliation, NKU received an invitation from the Atlantic Sun Conference on Dec. 8, 2011. The Norse, a power in Division II athletics the past two decades, begin competing in Division I this fall.
Eaton helped securing a partnership with nationally renowned Nelligan Sports Marketing this summer as NKU begins its transition to Division I. NKU also launched a major capital campaign in conjunction with the move to Division I athletics under Eaton's watch.
Since taking the position, Eaton has watched NKU win the 2010 Great Lakes Valley Conference All-Sports Trophy and capture three consecutive GLVC Commissioner's Cup awards. In addition, the NKU men's soccer program won the NCAA Division II national championship in 2010. It marked the first national title for a men's sport at NKU.
The soccer national championship in 2010 coincided with the opening of the $6.5 million NKU Soccer Stadium. Eaton played a key role in the design and building of the new facility, which enabled NKU to move its games back to campus for the first time since 1998. As a result of the move back to campus, NKU ranked fourth nationally in attendance in 2010.
NKU student-athletes have also excelled in the classroom, as the 250 student-athletes achieved a record 3.10 cumulative grade point average in the spring of 2012, with 67 percent of all student-athletes achieving a 3.0 GPA or higher.
The athletics Web site implemented video highlights and interviews for the first time in history last season, another of the upgrades that have occurred during Eaton's three years as director of athletics. In addition, a re-launch of www.nkunorse.com will take place in August as NKU moves to Division I.
Under Eaton's direction, NKU began participating in the Adopt-A-Class program two years ago, as Norse student-athletes and coaches adopted Newport Intermediate School as part of that initiative. Members of the NKU athletics department took frequent visits to Newport Intermediate as part of the Adopt-A-Class program, a non-profit organization dedicated to pairing classrooms in underserved urban schools with area businesses and community groups.
Eaton also developed an Olympic Day for Newport Intermediate School, as students visited the NKU campus and participated in many activities with coaches, student-athletes and staff.
NKU's athletics programs also gained unprecedented commercial radio coverage during the past two years on WQRT Real Talk (1160 AM). NKU basketball made the move back to the AM side of the dial after spending the previous four years on WIOK (107.5 FM). The move allowed listeners to enjoy the better strength of signal and additional promotional opportunities with the station.
Eaton has served on various NCAA committees during his career, including the women's basketball championships committee, the men's basketball rules committee, and the NCAA research committee. He also spearheaded the strategic planning for NKU's potential reclassification into Division I and played a major role in the university adding men's and women's track and field as varsity sports.
Eaton continues to work to enhance administrative and coaching positions at NKU. He has upgraded many positions from part-time to full-time status and expanded several assistant coaches' and administrative positions.
Eaton's efforts also helped NKU land the men's basketball NCAA Division II Elite Eight for the 2011-12 season. NKU hosted the event last March in The Bank of Kentucky Center and the university received unprecedented national exposure as the championship game was televised live in CBS.
Eaton has worked at NKU as an administrator since 1998 and served as the senior associate athletic director for administration prior to his appointment as director of athletics. During his career at NKU, Eaton has played key roles in the academic, compliance, budget, event management and facility areas. He also served as NKU's interim assistant vice president for student affairs from 2007-08.
Prior to NKU, Eaton worked at Brown University in Providence, R.I., as special assistant to the athletic director and assistant men's basketball coach. Eaton graduated from Bowdoin College in 1986 after participating in basketball, lacrosse, cross country and track.
He later earned master's degrees from both Fitchburg State College and Springfield College before receiving his doctorate from Boston University.
Eaton and his wife, Kathy, have four children, Gregory, Michael, Shannon and Becca.

However, I had the privilege of meeting with NKU Athletic Director Dr. Scott Eaton about two years ago, and it completely changed my perspective about the University.

During this meeting and in the preparation beforehand, I discovered that Northern Kentucky University had been researching and paving the way for this transition to Division I for nearly a decade. Individuals both within and outside of the University dedicated countless hours to research, fundraising, and figuring out what improvements would need to be made to the athletic department, the programs themselves, and the facilities. This work had gone unnoticed by most in Cincinnati, as NKU stood in the shadow of UC and Xavier. Dr. Eaton emphasized that while the athletic programs were highly competitive in Division II (three national titles since 2000), the impact of Division I athletics would not only benefit the sports programs and in the recruitment of athletes, but the University as a whole. It would bring eventual regional and national attention to a young university, and set it on the same stage both athletically and academically as UC and Xavier.
I could not have agreed more with Dr. Eaton, and I am thrilled to see that they have reached the entry point!
