Frazier leaves Temple for Syracuse post


The Herman Frazier era at Temple is over.

The Philadelphia native gave up his senior associate athletics director position to become Syracuse’s deputy athletics director/chief of staff. Frazier will oversee the daily operations of the Orange’s athletics department.

“I want to thank [Temple athletics director] Bill Bradshaw for giving me the opportunity to be a part of one of the best athletics senior staffs in the country,” Frazier said Thursday in a statement on Temple’s website. “It has been an honor to come back to Philadelphia and serve at Temple during one of the university’s most successful periods in intercollegiate athletics.

“I now look forward to the challenges that my new position at Syracuse present.”

Before Frazier’s three-year stint at Temple, he was served as Hawaii’s athletics director from 2002-2008.

Frazier also served as Alabama-Birmingham's athletic director for two years after being Arizona State’s senior associate athletics director for business operations.

“While I wish Herman all the best in his new venture, I will miss him dearly as a professional, and particularly as a person,” Bradshaw said in a statement. “He has been a valuable member of our team for three years and made solid contributions to our success.”
