Welcome, Class of 1982!
It is our pleasure to count you among our distinguished alumni. Think Adrian; think home.
Michael Duffy is a graduate of the Adrian College Class of 1982. He then proceeded to earn his Master’s degree in sports administration from the United States Sports Academy.
Duffy has been involved at Adrian College ever since he competed for the Bulldogs on the football field as a student-athlete. He has been associated with Adrian College since 1980 in several ways. He has been a coach for three different sports programs over the years, including 23 seasons as an assistant football coach, with 10 of those seasons serving as assistant head coach. He also was in charge of the baseball program for six seasons, and track and field for four more seasons.
Duffy has 29 years of experience leading student-athletes at Adrian College. The athletic department has seen tremendous growth since he took over as athletic director full-time in 2007. He has overseen an an athletic department that includes 23 varsity sports at the NCAA Division III level.
He has been involved in several building projects as the athletic facilities have been upgraded into some of the finest venues in NCAA Division III. Duffy oversaw the construction of the $16.5 million dollar Multi-Sport Performance Stadium on campus, and also venues such as Arrington Ice Arena, Craft Tennis Complex, Adrian College Track and Field Complex, Nicolay Field, AC Softball Field and the Frank and Shirley Dick Baseball and Softball Practice Facility.
Michael Duffy has a tremendous passion for Adrian College and has used this as a way to give back. He has been involved with the College, especially during the growth of the past seven years. Duffy chooses to give to the renaissance program for the general betterment of Adrian College. He is not just passionate about athletics, he is passionate about the growth and well-being of the entire College community.
Duffy and his wife, Rachelle (Class of 1984), director of Auxillary Services at Adrian College, have a son, Nick, who is currently enrolled at Adrian College.
I enjoy using this program as a way to connect with former classmates, and help them connect to the new and exciting changes around the College.
