Julie Hermann was officially introduced as Rutgers athletics director on Wednesday afternoon, culminating a nearly six-week search that resulted in a pool of 63 candidates.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome Julie Hermann to the Rutgers community,” Rutgers President Robert L. Barchi said upon introducing the former University of Louisville executive senior associate director of athletics. “She is one of the most respected athletics administrators in the country and she was deeply involved in moving Louisville from Conference USA to the Big East and from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Her 15 years of leadership experience will be an invaluable asset to the university as we prepare to enter the Big Ten.”

Hermann will be guaranteed an annual base salary of $450,000, and can earn up to $50,000 annually based on achievement of academic and athletic performance goals as determined by the president.
