Doug Mosley

Executive Director, Boca Raton Bowl

Doug Mosley joined ESPN in April 2014, charged with launching the inaugural Boca Raton Bowl, a postseason college football bowl game owned and operated by ESPN Events, and played annually at FAU Stadium, located on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Fla.

Mosley has more than 25 years’ experience in college athletics, including time as an athletic department senior administrator and a background in television and radio. Prior to joining ESPN, he was the senior associate director of athletics at the University of Cincinnati and the University of Louisiana-Monroe, and the director of athletics at Spring Hill College. He also saw stints at Troy University, Auburn University at Montgomery, University of West Florida and the small college governing body, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). He previously worked as a sports writer for the Pensacola News-Journal and The Leaf Chronicle (Clarksville, Tenn.).

In between those stops, he was hired as the fifth employee for Comcast’s Atlanta-based regional sports network in 2000, initially handling marketing and public relations and later leading programming acquisition and developing studio shows. He also served as the on-air commentator for the network’s college baseball games.

The Boca Raton Bowl isn’t Mosley’s first experience working on a sports event in Palm Beach County, having previously coordinated with the local sports commission when the NAIA brought its full slate of spring-time national championship events there in 1999. Additionally, Mosley also has extensive experience at the international sports level, serving as the softball Venue Press Chief during the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, a representative for Kodak’s photographer services at the 1998 Goodwill Games in New York and a United States Olympic Committee (USOC) track and field press attaché during the 1999 Pan Am Games in Winnipeg. He was also active in the USOC’s Olympic Public Relations Association (OPRA).

Mosley has been a member of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) and College Athletic Business Management Association (CABMA). He was formerly a member of the board of directors for both the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and the NAIA Sports Information Directors Association (NAIA-SIDA). He currently sits on the board of directors of the Palm Beach County Sports Commission.

A native of Seehorn, Ill., Mosley earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing in 1985 from Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Mo., where he played football and tennis.
