Meet Pitt's new athletic director
It's official: Pitt has hired Eastern Michigan athletic director Heather Lyke to replace Scott Barnes, who left last month for Oregon State.
So, who is Lyke?
■ She's a former college athlete herself, having been a first baseman at Michigan from 1989-92
■ She's from Canton, Ohio, where they're known to like their football, and went to Glen Oak High School, where she also was a volleyball and basketball player of some renown
■ She has a law degree from Akron
■ She also has worked as a softball color analyst on Big Ten Network
■ She and husband David Catalano have three children
■ She was an associate athletic director at Ohio State for 15 years, rising to senior associate AD in 2013 before leaving for Eastern Michigan
■ At EMU, she was the first woman to be the full-time AD, just as she is at Pitt.
