University of New Orleans President John Nicklow introduced Tim Duncan as the school’s new athletic director at a news conference in the Homer Hitt Alumni and Visitors Center ballroom on Tuesday.

Duncan, a Memphis native, will take over the role on June 3 after finishing his current duties as the deputy athletic director for external affairs at Northeastern University in Boston. He has held leadership roles at both NCAA Division I and Division II institutions, including serving as director of athletics on two different occasions. During his college years, Duncan was a student-athlete on the men’s basketball team for his hometown school, the University of Memphis (known as Memphis State at the time).

Jude Young of CCS spoke briefly with Duncan about coming down to New Orleans to lead the Privateers:
