Stanford Director of Athletics and TeachAids Advisor Leads Teams to IMG College Director’s Cup
TeachAids would like to congratulate one of our very own advisors, Bernard Muir, on another incredibly successfully year directing Stanford Athletics. On June 28th, it was announced that Stanford Athletics won the 2019 Director’s Cup for their success across 19 sports, with six national championships.
This achievement marks the 25th consecutive year that Stanford has clinched the Cup, which is presented to the most successful intercollegiate athletics department in the nation. In his past seven years at Stanford, Muir not only continued the Director’s Cup wins, but also led Stanford to become the first school in NCAA history to win both the Men’s and Women’s Capital One Cup. Stanford has won 21 NCAA championships under Director Muir’s leadership, bringing its total to 117, with 142 national team championships overall. In addition to its 36 varsity sports, the Stanford Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation supports campus-wide recreation, intramurals, fitness and wellness programs and 32 club sports.
A previous collegiate basketball player, Muir has served as a member of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee since 2012, which oversees all administrative aspects of NCAA collegiate men’s basketball at the D1 level. He was an Athletic Director of the Year finalist for the Sports Business Journal Awards in 2016 and was a recipient of the NCAA’s prestigious Silver Anniversary Award in 2015. Prior to his time at Stanford, Muir was the athletic director at Georgetown University and the University of Delaware.
TeachAids is honored to congratulate one of the nation’s premier athletic directors, Bernard Muir, on this Director’s Cup win. The CrashCourse advisory team is grateful to have his advice in working to improve head injury education in youth sports.
