Assistant Sports Information
Director John Sullivan works at his desk Thursday. Sullivan accepted an
SID job at Rice after 11 years with the UH
"It's an exciting new opportunity. I'm
looking forward to a new beginning," Sullivan said. "I'm proud of my 11
years of service at UH."
Sullivan began working for the Cougar athletic
department in August 1990 after graduating in 1988 with a degree in Journalism.
His many duties as
assistant SID included media relations
for the swimming and diving, baseball, volleyball and golf programs.
Sullivan is a consummate professional who
performed his job at UH with enthusiasm and vigor. His kindness and gracious
demeanor to reporters
from The Daily Cougar will be sorely missed.
Sullivan will report to Rice University
on September 17 to begin his job as a Rice SID.
"I'll probably be up here finishing things
until the eleventh hour," Sullivan said.
We sports writers find it only fitting
to say "adios" to our friend and mentor John Sullivan with a line from
the UH alma mater: "To thy memory
cherished/ True we'll ever be."
