Del Conte Named Athletics Director
"Welcome, I am Victor Boschini and I am very privileged to work at Texas Christian University. I am here today to make a very exciting announcement that will affect all of us. TCU has been experiencing a remarkable period of growth, and it's amazing in just about every area of the University. Our campus has undergone some of the most significant transformations in the history of the University. We continue to establish new and exciting programs in our schools and colleges, but, most importantly, we are recruiting outstanding faculty, staff and especially students. We are all very proud of that."
"At this time, I would also like to say a special welcome today to Rick Wittenbraker. Rick is a member of our Board of Trustees and is chairman of the athletics committee on the Board. He put in countless hours on this search. I would really want to thank Rick personally and on behalf of this institution. We could not have done it without you. At this time, please join me in welcoming our new athletics director, Mr. Chris Del Conte."
"Before we talk about TCU, I want to stop and acknowledge the folks at Rice, because they have been very dear to me. This decision was never about Rice. It was always about TCU. The vision this institution has, to be great academically and athletically, should inspire all of us. Our goals are not only to be great in the classrooms, but to be great on the playing fields. The Board of Trustees and the Chancellor have outlined a plan for us to get there and that is absolutely inspiring. So to the people at Rice, I thank you for the opportunity. It was a great three and a half years. I am going to miss them dearly, but that gave me an opportunity to be here, and I thank them for that."
"I can tell you that my wife and I excited about the Fort Worth community. Having young children and a wife that is an educator, education is important to us. What is important too is winning at the highest level and TCU wins in every facet of the game, academically and athletically. We are truly excited to be here. Chancellor, I hope in our time here that we will make you proud, because what you have done here is absolutely extraordinary. Thank you so much for bestowing the honor upon us. We will serve your student-athletes well."
