Houston native Chris Burkhalter is in his 11th year as the Associate Athletics Director for Communications at the University of Houston. In this capacity, he oversees sports information, media relations, publications, the Internet and radio and television services.

In addition to his role as the SID, Burkhalter serves as the administrative liaison to the softball program and serves as the department's radio/TV liaison to the Conference USA office.

Burkhalter was recently named to the NCAA Softball Committee, a four-year term beginning September of 2009. In this capacity Burkhalter will help select the softball teams that will participate in the NCAA Regionals each season.

In 2008, Burkhalter served as the tournament director for both the NCAA Houston Regional and NCAA Houston Super Regional hosted by the nationally ranked Cougar softball team, which won two straight Conference USA regular-season championships and captured the 2007 C-USA Tournament title.

He also served as the media coordinator for the NCAA Men's Basketball South Regional, held at Reliant Stadium in the spring of 2008.

Burkhalter returned to his hometown in 1998-99 after serving as the Assistant Athletics director for Media Relations at UTEP. While in El Paso, he oversaw the Media Relations office while serving as the primary contact for the Miner football, men's basketball teams and men's and women's golf programs.

Burkhalter went to UTEP after spending two years at Indiana State, where he was the Assistant AD for Media Relations. In his administrative role at Indiana State, Burkhalter managed the sports of men's and women's tennis, assisted the Director of Athletics with football scheduling, resurrected the ISU Hall of Fame as the Chair and served as the Tournament Director for the 1998 Missouri Valley Conference Women's Tennis Championships.

He also has worked with the Texas Terror of the Arena Football League and the NBA's Houston Rockets, Northern Arizona and Wyoming.

Burkhalter began his sports information career as a graduate assistant at Louisiana-Lafayette. He earned his master's degree in European history from Louisiana-Lafayette in 1992 and received his bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from Texas State in 1989, where he was named Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.

He is a member of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, the Football Writers' Association of American, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and the Touchdown Club of Houston.

Burkhalter and his wife, Kristi, have two sons, Mack and Carson. He also has a daughter, Alexis who is a freshman at Texas Tech. The family lives in Sugar Land.
