George Mason Athletic Director Tom O’Connor announced that Adam Brick, former interim director of athletics at Georgetown University, has accepted a newly created position at Mason as the senior associate athletic director, external relations.
“Adam brings to George Mason a strong and extensive background as an athletic administrator in both management and fund raising,” says O’Connor.
“As Mason athletics moves forward, more of an emphasis needed to be placed on external relations and fund raising. I am extremely pleased with Adam’s experience and the terrific job he did at Georgetown, especially in his interim year as athletic director. Under his guidance, a successful campaign to raise money for facilities was achieved.”
“It’s an exciting time at George Mason,” says Brick. “The basketball team is coming off a banner season, and the university has stated a priority for capital improvements regarding athletic facilities. My challenge is to help make that vision a reality.”
After leaving Georgetown in 2005, Brick founded Brick Athletic Consulting LLC, which provides management consulting, strategic planning services and innovative problem solving for intercollegiate athletic programs.

He worked his way up through the ranks of the athletic department, beginning as the assistant director of intramural sports and special programs and ending as interim director of athletics in 2004-05.
He was the senior associate director of athletics for legal affairs for five years prior to taking over athletic director duties for the Hoyas. He was responsible for NCAA legislation and compliance, was the sport administrator for 10 sports and had administrative oversight of Hoyas Unlimited, the fund-raising organization for athletics. In addition, he was responsible for coordinating Georgetown’s efforts with respect to Title IX and the NCAA Athletics Certification program.
Brick received his JD from Georgetown Law Center in 1990. He is a member of the District of Columbia Bar and the Virginia Bar.
