* Logan Belz named Associate AD for Revenue Generation

University of Evansville Director of Athletics Ziggy Siegfried has announced the hiring of Logan Belz as the Associate Athletics Director for Revenue Generation. 

“We are excited to have Logan join the athletics senior leadership team.  He is an individual that will make an instant positive impact on our department, and our community,” Siegfried exclaimed.  “He has an unmatched work ethic, a passion for supporting student-athletes, and he is an individual that provides a high-level of service to everyone he encounters. I have worked with Logan for several years and I can tell you that the Purple Aces got better with him joining our team!”

Belz will develop and execute strategies for revenue generation, foster relationships with constituents, and will be a member of the Director of Athletics’ executive leadership team. Belz will also serve as a sport administrator for multiple sports. 

“I want to thank Dr. Ziggy Siegfried for inviting me to be a part of The University of Evansville Purple Aces family! The Purple Aces have a long history of athletics success. I can’t wait to hit the ground running and help create an amazing atmosphere at all of our athletics events, Belz said.  “I’m excited to get out into our community and get to know Purple Aces alumni, friends, fans, and longtime supporters that love the Purple & Orange. Our coaches, scholar-athletes, and constituents are the life blood of our Purple Aces program and I’ll be here for them to listen and learn.”

“I will go to sleep and wake up thinking about the Purple Aces every day and work tirelessly to assist in creating amazing memories for our fanbase. The Purple Aces are on the rise and I’m looking forward to getting to work and grinding for our community.”

Belz joins the Aces program from Cal State Bakersfield where he worked for Siegfried during his tenure with the Roadrunners.  Most recently, Belz was the Assistant Athletics Director for Special Projects.  He joined the department in July of 2015 and held other positions in revenue generation, ticketing and operations.  While at CSU Bakersfield, Belz broke revenue records and CSUB saw an all-time high for season and group tickets for all eight ticketed sports.

He also spearheaded many gameday fan engagement projects that resulted in sell outs for different sporting events. Those projects included Men’s Basketball Education Day, Men’s Basketball Agriculture Night and “Runners On The Road” bus trips to different contests. He also assisted in fundraising for numerous sport specific fundraisers such as Hot Stove, which benefited CSUBs baseball program, Evening with Coach Rod Barnes, which benefited the Men’s Basketball program, the Tip-Off Luncheon, which benefited both basketball programs, and Brains of Bakersfield, which benefited the Men’s Soccer program.

His efforts were equally impressive in women’s sports at CSUB.  He led initiatives that broke ticket revenue and attendance records in tickets sports that included women’s basketball, softball, women’s soccer and volleyball.  Multiple community initiatives were introduced that connected the Bakersfield community to the programs.

Before making the move to Bakersfield, Belz worked at the University of Memphis as an Athletics Development Assistant.  He assisted with the 901 campaign that helped to steward new members and donors while contributing in multiple facets of managing gameday operations for the development staff. 

His first position in California came at UC Berkeley where he worked from 2013-14 as a Development Assistant/Event Ambassador for the Cal Alumni Association while serving the Golden Bears’ Athletics Department as an Olympic Sport Operations Assistant. 

As a student at Memphis, Belz was the Head Manager for the men’s basketball team for over two seasons.  He earned a BS in Sports and Leisure Management from Memphis in 2014 before obtaining his Master of Public Administration (MPA) from CSU Bakersfield in 2017.
