“I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with Laker athletics during this exciting time,” Vasey said. “I would like to thank Dr. David Paitson, for this opportunity. I am grateful to be able to work with a talented group of administrators and coaches, who share my passion for college athletics and the student-athlete experience.”
