Virginia Tech filled a major role within the administration last week, hiring Brad Wurthman. Now, Tech has filled the last major role with a new hiring.
Director of Athletics Whit Babcock announced on Wednesday that Virginia Tech has hired Angie Littlejohn as Senior Associate Athletic Director for Internal Operations. Littlejohn will oversee Tech’s help in launching the ACC Network in 2019, as well as matters related to NCAA compliance, coaching contracts and student-athlete eligibility.
“Angie will serve in a vital role on our executive leadership team,” Babcock said in a statement. “Her legal expertise and ability to navigate complex issues will make her a valuable resource for me, our coaches and our entire department. In addition, successfully launching and sustaining the ACC Network will be wholly important to not only Virginia Tech, but also the entire ACC. We are entrusting her and our team with a lot of responsibilities that will positively impact our student-athletes, coaches and our fans. I know she will continue to cultivate strong relationships on campus, in the community and with our supporters. I like the relatively unique skillset she brings to our department along with her tremendous drive and work ethic. I am excited for her to join the Hokies.”
Littlejohn, 33, is the youngest female senior associate athletic director in the ACC. She comes from Furman, where she served as General Counsel and Executive Associate Athletics Director at Furman. Littlejohn spent four years at Furman, starting out as a legal advisor to the university and working her way up. Prior to Furman, Littlejohn oversaw academic advising at Presbyterian College.
