Renee Carlineo has been named the new Director of Athletics at Elmira College.
Carlineo will become the third Director of Athletics in Elmira College’s storied history, effective January 7, 2019.
“I am honored for this opportunity to lead Elmira College Athletics and incredibly excited to join the team of talented and passionate coaches, staff, and student-athletes,” Carlineo said. “The dedication, tradition, and love for the Soaring Eagles that they exhibited during the interview process made it easy to know that Elmira is the right place to be.”
Carlineo’s appointment is the result of a national search, which began following the announcement that Vice President of Athletics, Pat Thompson, would retire in December, following a 43-year career as a staff member, coach, and administrator.
Carlineo is a native of Corning and graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Science in Sport Psychology as well as a Master of Science in Sport & Exercise Science.
After college, Carlineo had several roles at Buffalo State from 2007-12 and in 2015 she was named the Associate Director of Athletics at RIT.
