Cullowhee, N.C. – Western Carolina sixth-year head coach Mark Speir has announced the addition of Michael Painter to his staff, fulfilling the role of Director of Football Operations. Painter, who has been on the coaching staffs of five different schools during his professional career, joins WCU football after four years at the University of Connecticut.
Painter assumes a role previously held for several years by longtime department member, Dan Gibson, who took over as the WCU Director of NCAA Compliance in June.
“We’re excited about the addition of Michael Painter and his family to our Catamount football family. Michael has huge shoes to fill in the departure of Dan Gibson who has been a vital part of Catamount football for many years as he moved on into compliance,” said Speir. “Michael brings a wealth of knowledge as a player and his experience from numerous stops including most recently UConn. He’s a very sharp individual that will bring new ideas to our staff, and we’re thrilled to have him on board.”
