Michael Goodman departing from the USCAA National Office

Norfolk, VA – Mike Goodman has announced his departure from the United States Collegiate Athletic Association after eight years of loyal service to the organization.  Goodman has compiled a long list of different job functions during his time with the USCAA. Beginning as the association’s Administrator of Communications and Compliance, he developed the USCAA’s eligibility center, a platform on the USCAA website for all matters dealing with the association’s eligibility guidelines. Goodman also created the USCAA’s first eligibility Case Study Handbook, led development of the USCAA Code of Conduct policy, and in 2012 oversaw the association’s transition to PrestoSports as the official statistical provider of the USCAA.

Furthermore, Goodman has spearheaded efforts to improve the layout and content of the USCAA website, improve the association’s ratings and selections processes, internal and external communication channels, contributed to redesign of the USCAA website, and conceptualized and implemented all the USCAA's standalone championship websites.

To date, Goodman served as the USCAA’s compliance chairman, working with the membership to ensure timely and accurate reporting of USCAA eligibility documentation, and working with the USCAA’s eligibility committee to process all applicable waivers. He oversaw USCAA Coaches Polls, Sport Committees, internal subcommittees, and lead development of internal marketing initiatives aimed at highlighting the USCAA’s unique mission and niche in intercollegiate athletics. Most importantly Goodman led planning and development of 15 USCAA championship events.

Goodman recently began pursuit of his MBA with the University of Wisconsin. He currently lives in Chesapeake, Virginia with his wife Lauren and their son Griffin.  He moves on to an executive position with Dollar Tree/Family Dollar which is headquartered in Chesapeake.  We applaud him for his faithful and dedicated service to student-athletes and wish him the best in his new endeavors.
