Davidson College alum Chris Clunie, whose Watson Fellowship helped propel him to working in NBA international operations, will return to Davidson as Director of Athletics.

Clunie, a former Wildcats basketball player from the class of ’06, takes the athletics helm after working for the San Antonio Spurs and, for the past decade, the NBA. He has risen through a series of roles with increasing rank and responsibility that have taken him to more than 30 countries.

He currently serves as the NBA’s director for international basketball operations, bringing elite development programs, coaching workshops and other major events to nations across the globe. He also oversees basketball operations for NBA All-Star Weekend and the NBA Draft Combine that started Tuesday in Chicago.
