Jeramiah  Dickey

Position:
Deputy Athletics Director


Jeramiah Dickey joined the University of Houston Athletics Department of Intercollegiate Athletics in May 2010 as associate athletics director for development. In the Spring of 2014, Dickey was promoted to senior associate athletics director for external relations. Dickey was named Deputy Athletics Director on May 22, 2015.

He also serves as the department's liaison to University Advancement, University of Houston Alumni Association and IMG, the multimedia rights partner for Houston Athletics, is the sport administrator for the nationally-ranked Houston Baseball program and is a secondary sport administrator for the Houston Football program.

Under Dickey's leadership, Cougar Pride, the development arm of Houston Athletics, has set fundraising records in five consecutive fiscal years. During the 2013-14 fiscal year, more than 3,100 Cougar Pride members contributed $4.5 million throughout the 2013-2014 athletics year, topping the previous record of $3.5 million, in support of nearly 400 Houston student-athletes. The record number does not include private donations to any capital campaigns or donations to sport-specific booster clubs and gives Cougar Pride an increase of $2.8 million in annual funds raised since $1.7 million was collected in 2009.

He was instrumental in the University of Houston securing a 10-year, $15 million naming rights partnership with TDECU, an agreement that ranked third nationally among all collegiate facilities for corporate naming agreements, while serving on the stadium's opening committee. In December of 2014, Dickey was instrumental as a member of the hiring committee for Houston Football head coach Tom Herman.

In its first year under Dickey's umbrella, Houston Athletics ticket sales sold a record 15,022 Houston Football season tickets while Houston Baseball season tickets members increased by 185 percent in 2014-15.

Dickey came to Houston after serving for more than three years as assistant athletics director for development at the University of Akron. During his tenure, he oversaw the Zips Athletics Scholarship Fund and solicited restricted sport-specific donations as well as major and capital campaign gifts.

In a four-year stretch, his office increased overall giving from nearly $900,000 in 2005-06 to more than $2.2 million in 2009-10. It was the first time in the history of the Akron Athletics Department that giving topped the $2 million mark.

Dickey played a key role in creating and capital campaign initiatives including naming opportunities for a variety of projects, including InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field, the Lee Jackson Track and Field Complex, the Lee Jackson Soccer Facility and the Center for Basketball Excellence in James A. Rhodes Arena.

Dickey, an El Paso, Texas, native, previously worked at UTEP with Rhoades as the assistant director for athletics development. In addition to his primary role of managing and developing the Miner Athletic Club Annual Gift Fund, he successfully coordinated several projects, including a volunteer fund drive that resulted in nearly $400,000 in new season ticket sales and donations and a business campaign resulting in more than $40,000 in new contributions.

He began his tenure at UTEP in 2003, moving through marketing and promotions as the assistant director before making the transition to development. During his one year in that position, he generated revenue through sponsorship and group ticket sales while acting as the community relations and advertising coordinator.

Dickey earned his bachelor's degree in sport management from the University of Texas in 2004. He received his master's degree in sports science and will receive his master's degree in sports science and coaching from Akron in fall of 2015.

He and his wife, Elizabeth, have one daughter, Emerson.
