University of the South Athletic Director Mark Webb enters his 25th year at Sewanee in 2019-20. Since his arrival, Webb has made an incredible mark on one of the nation's most storied Division III programs.

After 12 years at Vanderbilt University, Webb took the helm at Sewanee in July of 1995. Through his guidance, Sewanee’s Athletic Department remains focused on a vision of having all Tiger athletic teams and student-athletes competitive at the highest level while continuing to elevate athletic facilities.

Under Webb’s leadership, Sewanee has enjoyed tremendous success athletically and academically. The Tigers have produced multiple individual and team conference championships while a number of student-athletes have won major national academic awards, including the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

Additionally, Webb has chaired and oversaw the creation of the Sewanee Athletics Hall of Fame, and was a key factor in helping create the Southern Athletic Association, where Sewanee is a charter member since the 2012-13 academic year. 

After ushering the Tigers into a new technological age, Webb has overseen a multi-million dollar capital improvement campaign, which continues to help all 24 Sewanee programs.

In July 2018, Webb led the charge for a multi-year deal with Under Armour and BSN SPORTS, giving the athletic department numerous incentives in the form of discounts and rewards along with incentives for on-field achievements and additional marketing and promotional opportunities.

In addition to making his mark for the Tigers, Webb continues to make an impact as a key member of several prestigious NCAA and University committees. Webb currently serves on the National Association of Collegiate Director of Athletics and the District III NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Committee.
