Erik Weiler joined the Valpo Athletics team in October 2016 as associate director of athletics for facilities. Weiler arrived at Valpo following an 11-year stay at Loyola (Ill.), where he was the Ramblers’ assistant director of athletics for facilities as well as the director of Gentile Arena. 

In his role as associate director of athletics for facilities at Valpo, Weiler is responsible for the management and scheduling of the Athletics facilities. This includes working with Facilities Management on the cleaning, upkeep and maintenance of the Athletics-Recreation Center, Brown Field and all other Athletics facilities on campus. He is also responsible for setting up and preparing the Athletics facilities for competitions and practices. Weiler also serves as the sport administrator for the softball program.

“Establishing a position with sole responsibility for the oversight and management of our facilities is an important step forward for Valpo Athletics,” said LaBarbera. “Being able to fill this important position with a professional with Erik’s background and experience is a home run.”

At Loyola, Weiler was responsible for managing scheduling and maintenance of Gentile Arena, the former Alumni Gym, and Hoyne Athletic Field, as well as supervising Loyola game management staff.
