SBCC Athletic Director to Leave for New Position

Santa Barbara City College announced that Athletic Director Ryan Byrne has accepted a position as Director of Athletics and Kinesiology at College of Marin in Northern California. His last day with SBCC will be August 1, 2016.

Mr. Byrne has served as Director of Athletics for SBCC since 2011. Over his 5 year career at SBCC, The Vaqueros have won two state titles (Women’s Golf, 2013 & 2015) and 16 Western State Conference championships. They also placed in the top 20 in the National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA) State Cup the last three years, taking 15th, 16th and 20th in the athletic supremacy contest.

“I’m really proud of what we have been able to accomplish over the past five years and feel so fortunate to have been a part of a great team at SBCC. Together, we were able to dramatically increase the number of student-athletes that complete their degrees and move on to four-year institutions, all while building a great relationship with our local community and becoming a perennial top 20 athletics program in the state” said Ryan Byrne.

“He has left a lasting impact on SBCC with his dedication to the academic success of our student-athletes. We are sad to see him go, but wish him all the best in his new position that allows him to be closer to family” said Superintendent/President Dr. Anthony E. Beebe.
