University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez adjusted responsibilities to some of his senior staff, it was announced Wednesday.
One of the changes was that Chris McIntosh, formerly the associate athletic director for business development, will assume the role of deputy athletic director. He will take over for former deputy Walter Dickey, who will remain with the department and resume oversight of areas he held previously, including compliance, government affairs and liaison for legal affairs, in addition to serving as a co-liaison to the Big Ten Conference and UW Athletic Board.
McIntosh, a former All-American and Outland Trophy finalist who started 50 straight games at left tackle in the late 1990s for the Badgers, went into private business following his NFL career in Seattle.
He has been with the UW athletic department since 2014. He will have oversight of human resources, recruiting, business development, and strategic planning, while serving as a co-liaison to the UW Athletic Board and Big Ten Conference.
“I am always looking to put people into positions and give them responsibilities that are in the best interests of the department,” Alvarez said.
