Northwestern has hired Chris Reynolds to be deputy director of athletics, recreation and operations, the university announced.
Reynolds spent the past nine years at his alma mater, Indiana.
"We're ecstatic to add someone with Chris' skills and character to our team," Vice President for Athletics & Recreation Jim Phillips said in a statement. "His professional experience in college athletics is remarkably varied and that informed perspective will help us continue to deliver a world-class experience for our student-athletes."
Reynolds was the senior associate athletic director at Indiana University, where he served as sport administrator for several athletics programs, including men's basketball, and operated as the athletic department's liaison to the University General Counsel's Office.
Before that, he was an assistant athletic director in the compliance office of the University of Notre Dame, and previously worked in athletic administration at Western Michigan University, Michigan State University and in the NCAA national office.
A four-year letterwinner in basketball for Indiana, Reynolds helped lead the Hoosiers to a pair of Big Ten titles and the 1992 Final Four.
