His background at Vanderbilt provides him with the experience and knowledge necessary to understand and carry out his responsibilities at Virginia.”
Booz joined the Vanderbilt athletics department as an academic counselor for student-athletes in October of 1995 and continued in that role until July of 1998 when he was named director of eligibility and summer programs. He continued as an academic counselor after assuming his new responsibilities. He was named assistant athletics director for compliance in 2000.

“I would like to thank Todd Turner for allowing me the opportunity to develop as an athletics administrator at Vanderbilt. My experience at Vanderbilt has prepared me for the new challenge I take on at Virginia.”
