The Army West Point Athletic Association has appointed Dan McCarthy '90 Interim Director of Athletics as the department conducts a nationwide search for the Athletic Director position. McCarthy assumes his duties effective immediately. He transitions into this new role after the departure of Boo Corrigan, who was named the Director of Athletics at North Carolina State University earlier this spring.
"First, it's important that we thank Boo Corrigan for all that he has done for Army West Point Athletics over the past eight years," McCarthy said. "His time as the Director of Athletics has truly been transformational and his visionary leadership has positioned the athletic department for continued success.
"We wish Boo, his wife Kristen, and their children all the best as he transitions into his new role. The Corrigan family has contributed so much to the U.S. Military Academy and the West Point community and they will be sorely missed."
McCarthy has been with the department since the start of the 2017-18 season and was added to Corrigan's executive staff prior to the 2018-19 academic year. He joined the staff as the Associate Athletic Director for Administration after spending a season as the Director of Football Operations. McCarthy was on Jeff Monken's staff after retiring from the military in 2017 after 27 years of service, attaining the rank of Colonel.
"I'd like to thank our Superintendent, LTG Williams, for the trust he has placed in me to lead the great coaches and staff in the athletic department during this time of transition," McCarthy added. "I am humbled by the opportunity and proud to serve the more than 1,000 cadet-athletes that are on our teams in providing them with an extraordinary Division I athletic experience while developing leaders of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor and Country."
