Matt Brewer is in his fourth year with the Colorado State athletic department. He joined the Rams on June 4, 2007, and was promoted to assistant athletic director in 2009.
Brewer, 31, works with every area of the department in overseeing CSU's compliance with NCAA and Mountain West Conference rules and regulations. He educates the staff on new NCAA legislation and rules interpretations, in addition to assisting the registrar's office and athletic faculty representative in certifying student-athletes each term.
Working with student-athletes before and after they first arrive on campus, Brewer coordinates official visits, evaluates their transcripts, verifies official national letter of intent documents, and assists with the admission process. Once student-athletes are in Fort Collins, he oversees their daily eligibility and, when necessary, creates applications for NCAA petitions, such as medical hardship waivers.
In the spring of 2008, the NCAA appointed him to serve a three-year term on its recruiting cabinet, a prestigious national committee. Also, in the first and second rounds of the 2008 NCAA men's basketball tournament held in Denver and co-hosted by the university, he worked the full week with Michigan State's squad as a team host. What's more, each spring he serves as the softball public address announcer at Ram Field.
A Pacific Northwest native, Brewer joined the CSU team from Washington State, where he served as assistant director of compliance (2006-07), compliance coordinator (2004-06) and compliance assistant (2003-04). He got his start in the field at Arizona State, where he completed a compliance/marketing internship in 2000.
A captain on the Whitman College baseball team, Brewer was a four-year starter and two-time all-conference selection. In addition, he represented the team on Whitman's student-athlete advisory council (SAAC).
Brewer owns a bachelor's degree in sociology (Whitman '02) and a master's of education with an emphasis in athletic administration from Washington State ('05).
Born in Seattle, Wash., Brewer graduated from Eastlake High School in Sammamish, Wash. He and his wife, Shanna, make their home in Fort Collins with their newborn daughter, Hailey.
