PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (May 15, 2019) - Tim Hamill has been named the Director of Athletics at Holy Family University as announced by Abigail Wernicki, Vice President for Student Affairs earlier last week. Hamill, who spent the previous academic year in the interim, becomes the department's second AD in its 33 year history.
"This is a dream come true," said Hamill. "Holy Family has been my home for 19 years, first as a student-athlete, then as an employee. My connection and dedication to the University will serve me well in my tenure and I am excited to get started. I would like to thank Sister Maureen [McGarrity] and Dr. Wernicki for having the trust and confidence in me to continue to lead and develop the department of athletics for years to come."
Hamill has been part of the Holy Family 'family' for the past 19 years when he started as an undergraduate in 2000 to his most recent role as interim Athletic Director.

Hamill was a member of the men's soccer team (2000-2003) and earned All-Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) first team honors in 2003. That same year Hamill led Division II in assists becoming the first student-athlete to earn a statistical leader award in the university's Division II era.
Hamill has worked his way up the ranks in the athletic department, first as the Fitness Center Manager in 2005 as well as assisting a number of sports, including cross country/track & field, men's soccer and softball.
