CBU names new director of Athletics

Riverside, Calif. (April 23, 2021) – California Baptist University has named Tyler Mariucci as the director of Athletics as announced by CBU President Dr. Ronald L. Ellis on April 23.

“Tyler will bring exceptional leadership and experience in athletics administration to Lancer Nation,” Ellis said. “His background at several reputable programs with strong outcomes in generating external support and a commitment to the student-athlete experience both in the field of competition and in the classroom will allow us to build on our commitment to excellence in athletics and academics.”

Mariucci has worked in leadership roles at NCAA Division I institutions spanning the Big Ten, West Coast Conference and Mountain West Conference during great transformation and change, including multiple conference realignments and significant increases in revenue generation.

"I'm very excited and honored to become the next director of Athletics at CBU during this transformational time in the university's history," Mariucci said.

The Lancers are in year three of competing at the NCAA Division I level primarily as a member of the Western Athletic Conference. As of late March, the Lancers were leading the 2020-21 WAC Commissioner's Cup standings and their six league titles ranked tops in the country tied with the Texas Longhorns.
