Fullerton, Calif. -
Kellie Cox and Ike Ukaegbu have been promoted to assistant athletic director positions for marketing and compliance, respectively, at Cal State Fullerton.
Cox, a former Titan women's soccer standout, has been working in the athletics department for more than three years in marketing and promotions. She also coordinates the Titans' dance and cheerleader squads.
Ukaegbu has been serving as compliance coordinator for just under one year. He came to Fullerton in February from American University in Washington, DC, where he had been director of compliance for two years.
"We have been very pleased with Kellie's performance in sponsorships and marketing and with her fine work with our band and spirit squads," said Director of Athletics Brian Quinn. "We are thrilled with this new promotion for Kellie and know she will continue her outstanding service to the department.
"Ike has taken over many duties formerly assigned to Julie Bowse before she became senior woman administrator. He already has done remarkable work in compliance and has definitely made a difference."
Cox' playing career covered the 2001-05 seasons. She earned first-team All-Big West Conference honors in 2001, 2004 and 2005 and earned honorable mention in 2002. She missed the 2003 season due to injury. In 2005 she was the conference co-offensive player of the year with teammate Kandace Wilson. Only one other Titan women's soccer player has earned all-conference recognition in four seasons.
Cox holds school records for career assists and starts and shares the single-season mark for games and starts. She is No. 3 in all-time scoring with 60 points and No. 5 in career goals with 21. She earned her bachelors degree in business in 2006 and her masters in business in 2008.
Ukaegbu previously was a compliance intern at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and before that held part-time positions at his alma mater, the University of Arizona, where he earned a bachelors degree in 2007 in political science. Ukaegbu earned his masters degree in 2008 in sports administration from Saint Thomas University in Miami Gardens, Florida.
