Sean Eaton Joins Valpo Women’s Basketball Staff

Valparaiso University women’s basketball coach Mary Evans has announced the addition of Sean Eaton to her staff as the director of basketball operations.

Eaton graduated from Valpo with a master’s in sports administration in May 2018 after completing his undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in communications in 2016.

“There was no doubt I wanted to be a part of this program after sitting down with Coach Evans and getting to hear her vision for the team and the way she wanted to approach coaching and building a program that is player-centric,” Eaton said. “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity that she has given me and I can’t wait to take on numerous responsibilities that will help me learn and grow in my role.”

Eaton worked as a graduate assistant in Valpo’s sports information department during the 2018 spring semester. Prior to that, he served as an intern at Priority Sports & Entertainment in Chicago during the 2017 fall semester. Eaton also owns experience as an account executive for 96.7 WCOE-FM/1540 WLOI-AM in LaPorte and as a producer for 540 ESPN Radio in Milwaukee.

“He was very outgoing in his pursuit of our position,” Evans said. “When we sat down and talked, I enjoyed his enthusiasm and energy about what the job entails. He’s going to do a wonderful job being the person on our staff who keeps everything running smoothly. Everyone I asked about him raved about his work ethic and desire to learn. That’s going to be important in his role with our program.”
