BYU hires Mark Atuaia as assistant to the athletic director
PROVO — BYU announced Wednesday the hiring of former player Mark Atuaia to its staff serving as the assistant to the athletic director for student services.
"We are excited to have Mark join our staff. He has a lot of passion for BYU and will be a great asset to our program," said Athletic Director Tom Holmoe. "He will work closely with me to increase our community outreach, mentor our student-athletes and champion several internal projects."
Atuaia played football at BYU in 1991 and 1994-96. From 1992-93 he served a fulltime church mission to Tucson, Ariz. Atuaia earned a bachelors degree from BYU-Hawaii in 2003 and later went on to earn a masters degree in public administration from BYU in 2009 and a doctor of jurisprudence from the BYU J. Reuben Clark Law School in 2011.
"I'm very excited for this new opportunity to work closely with the student-athletes and coaches at BYU. I have a real love for BYU and the athletic program," Atuaia said. "I appreciate the opportunity I've had to be mentored by Vern Heperi in student life and look forward to working closely with Tom Holmoe."
