June 27, 2013
BALTIMORE - Jim Paquette, Loyola University Maryland's assistant vice president and director of athletics, announced today that two members of the department's senior staff have been promoted to assistant athletic director, and another member of the athletic communications staff has been promoted, as well.
Also, Reilly Bradshaw will join the athletic department as the assistant director of athletic communications for video production on July 1.
Chris Archacki and Ryan Eigenbrode have been named assistant directors of athletics for business operations and communications, respectively; Amanda McClure has been promoted to associate director of athletic communications.
Bradshaw comes to Loyola after spending the last two years in video production at nearby Johns Hopkins University. There, Bradshaw oversaw all video content associated with Homewood Field's video board and the athletic department's website, directed live productions of games, managed a production staff and created graphics for promotional and social media use.
A 2011 graduate of Radford University, Bradshaw has also worked as an associate producer at Sirius XM's MLB Network Radio, and he began his video production career with the athletic department at his alma mater.
Archacki came to the Loyola athletic department in August 2011 after serving Loyola for 14 years at the University's Fitness and Aquatic Center, the last several as associate director of recreational sports.
In his two years with athletics, the Providence College and Miami University graduate has overseen financial operations as the principal budget officer and has worked with campus administrators to manage the strategic financial plan for capital projects within the athletic department. He is also involved with many school-wide initiatives and is the sport supervisor for rowing at Loyola.
Eigenbrode joined the athletics' staff at Loyola in August 2007 as an assistant director of athletic communications. After spending three years as the department's associate director, he was named the director of athletic communications in May 2011.
The graduate of the University of Arizona has overseen the growth of Loyola's video production services and social media ventures that have experienced expanded viewership of more than 200-percent in the last two years. In addition to his leadership of the office that coordinates all media and public relations for Loyola's 18 sports, Eigenbrode will also provide administrative support to the men's basketball program.
McClure, who is a graduate of LeMoyne College, has worked as an assistant director of athletic communications at Loyola since July 2011 after moving from the University of Virginia. At Loyola, she is the contact for Loyola's nationally prominent men's soccer and women's lacrosse programs, and she also leads the graphic design efforts of the department.
