Title: Director for Intercollegiate Athletics
Why are you participating?
Carter, who played fullback and was a team captain for the ETSU football team from 1998 to 2002, earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from ETSU. He went on to spend 10 years working in the athletic development offices at the University of Tennessee before returning to the Bucs' program in the winter of 2014. Since that time, Carter has had responsibilities for the operation of the athletic department while also helping lead many critically important initiatives such as the rebirth of the football program in 2015, the construction of the new on-campus football stadium in 2017, and directing multiple corporate and philanthropic fund raising efforts for the overall athletic department.
Carter, whose wife Kristen was also a student-athlete and graduated from ETSU, said the opportunity to lead the Bucs' athletic program is a dream come true for his entire family, which includes daughters Kate and Mia.
