David Joyner Named Athletic Director
Penn State Board of Trustees member David Joyner has been named acting director of athletics following the sudden departure of Tim Curley last week.
Mark Sherburne, who has filled in for Curley on an interim basis, will return to his former position as associate athletic director.
David Joyner has been a member of the Board of Trustees since 2000 and is a Distinguished Alumnus of Penn State. He received his M.D. from Penn State’s College of Medicine in 1976, and following a career in private practice, became the head athletic trainer for the 1992 Olympic Games.
Joyner also enjoyed a storied athletic career at Penn State. He was an All-American for the 1971 football team and part of Penn State’s 1968-1969 undefeated seasons. He was also an All-American wrestler, and was inducted in both the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame and the Pennsylvania Wrestling Hall of Fame.
