Weiberg Takes Reins as OSU Athletic Director
After spending the last four years as Deputy Athletic Director at Oklahoma State, Chad Weiberg officially recently moved into the role of Athletic Director.
He replaces Mike Holder, who after 16 years at the helm of OSU Athletics, transitions into the role of Athletic Director Emeritus.
As OSU’s Deputy Athletic Director, Weiberg was the chief operating officer, second-in-command and responsible for the day-to-day operations of the athletics department. He served as Holder’s administrative liaison for football and men’s basketball and was responsible for football scheduling.
During his time as Deputy AD, he played a significant role in successfully navigating OSU Athletics through the COVID pandemic. Notably, he developed a partnership with the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences that helped produce the planning and resources to keep Cowboy and Cowgirl student-athletes healthy, safe and ready for competition.
Weiberg was a key figure in several important initiatives that benefitted student-athletes and fans alike. A little more than one year after Weiberg’s arrival, OSU added a director of counseling and sport psychology position within the athletic department to better serve the mental health of student-athletes. In 2020, Weiberg played a role in launching – and continues to serve as a member of – the Oklahoma State Athletics Council for Diversity and Inclusion.
He also played a key part in improving OSU’s gameday experience. Highlights include the addition of one of the largest video boards at a college-only football stadium and the addition of alcohol sales at OSU athletic venues.
Weiberg is a 1994 graduate of Oklahoma State University, with a bachelor of business administration degree, and earned a master’s in business administration from OSU in 2002. After earning his undergraduate degree, he served as the director of corporate sales and donor relations for OSU Athletics until 1999. He served as senior director of field operations for the OSU Alumni Association from 1999-2002 before becoming the director of development for the OSU Foundation/College of Business Administration from 2002-03. He held a similar role for OSU Athletics from 2003-04 before moving to Kansas State.
At K-State, Weiberg served the KSU Foundation as Director of Corporate Relations for a year before becoming the Director of Major Gifts for K-State Athletics in 2005. Weiberg assumed the lead role for K-State Athletics’ Ahearn Fund in 2009 and, for his team’s efforts, was recognized as the National Fundraiser of the Year by the National Association of Athletic Development Directors in 2014. Weiberg was the Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development when he left K-State in 2015 to become Deputy Director of Athletics at Texas Tech University, a role in which he served for two years before returning to his alma mater in 2017.
College athletics have played a large role in Weiberg’s life from an early age. His father, Mick, and brother, Brett were both college basketball head coaches and his brother, Jared, played basketball at OSU under Eddie Sutton for a year before moving into the role of team manager. Weiberg’s uncle, Kevin, served as commissioner of the Big 12.
Weiberg and his wife, Jodi, have two children, Ella and Grant.
