XU's Horn named to NAIA's National Administrative Council

NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana Director of Athletics and Recreation Jason Horn has been named to the NAIA's National Administrative Council (NAC). Horn's 3-year appointment will officially begin this weekend at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) annual convention in Dallas.

The NAC helps shape policy at the highest level of the NAIA while governing rules and ratings, championship competition, awards and statistics, and experience and enhancement. The NAC is an exclusive group of approximately three dozen members representing all the NAIA conferences and approximately 250 schools within the NAIA. A minimum of 10 athletic directors and 10 conference commissioners serve on the NAC.

Horn will serve on the Championship Competition Subcommittee, which sets policies and procedures pertaining to NAIA national championship events.

"It is an honor to be appointed to the NAC and represent Xavier and the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference with the NAIA," Horn said. "The goal of the NAC is to strengthen the NAIA and its member institutions in providing our student-athletes the best possible experience, both academically and athletically."

The NAC conducts its business annually at the NAIA and the NACDA conventions. NAC subcommittees also meet throughout the academic year to review appeals and special requests from NAIA members and various coaches associations.

Horn is in his third year leading Xavier's athletic programs. He also serves on the NAIA's Competitive Experience Committee. Horn is completing a one-year term as the chair of the GCAC athletic directors. He also serves on the board of directors of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation.
