As we continue to mourn the loss of Joe Reyda ‘85, Gonzaga’s beloved and long-time athletic director, we remain grateful for the strength of the Athletic Department that Joe built over his tenure. While Joe’s absence is palpable, he has left a department full of strong and dedicated staff and coaches. Indeed, his legacy lives on. 

Until a new Athletic Director is appointed, Mr. Jim Kilroy, Assistant Headmaster for Student Life, will oversee the athletic department and all daily athletic operations. Please contact him directly for any athletic related inquiries at

The Athletic Director role at Gonzaga is an important one. Nearly 80% of all students participate in an athletic program during the course of an academic year. Gonzaga’s next Athletic Director will be one who sees the value of sport in the formation of young men of competence, conscience and character - men, and scholar-athletes, who are for and with others. 

To assist the school in finding its next Director of Athletics, Gonzaga has aligned with Partners in Mission, a search firm that will help advertise the opening and manage front-end communications with prospective candidates. If you are interested in the opportunity please reference the posting found here.
