Niagara hires Simon Gray as Athletic Director

LEWISTON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Simon Gray is the new Athletic Director at Niagara University, ending a nearly eight month-long stretch for NU without a permanent AD.

Gray spent the last nine years at Eastern Kentucky in a variety of roles, most recently serving as the schools acting AD. He replaces Tom Crowley, who abruptly parted ways with the school back in September.

“Niagara University has such a strong history of athletic achievement. I am thrilled to be coming to NU and I look forward to being a part in the continued success of the Purple Eagles,” said Gray. “This is a great opportunity and I look forward to working with people on campus, and in the local and regional communities, to spread the great name of Niagara athletics.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
