Masner Named Interim AD

Published: June 20, 2016

University President Jane Close Conoley has announced that Cindy Masner will serve as the Interim Athletics Director at CSULB effective June 1.

“Cindy Masner is a highly skilled and experienced administrator who is well respected within the athletics community,” said Conoley. “During her tenure at Long Beach she has demonstrated a deep devotion to the success of our student-athletes. I am confident that the athletics department will continue to excel during this time of transition.”

Masner has spent over 30 years working for Long Beach State athletics. The Senior Women’s Administrator and Senior Associate Athletics Director also has great experience with the process, having served as the department’s Interim AD in 2005-06 for 10 months during the search process that ended up in the hiring of Vic Cegles.

“As Athletic Director over the past 10 years, Vic has done a tremendous job moving our department forward,” said Masner. “I am excited for the opportunity President Conoley has given me as the interim Athletic Director, to continue building a winning athletics program which is centered around the welfare as well as academic and athletic success of our student-athletes. Having such dedicated, hardworking coaches and staff in the department will help continue the tradition of excellence in our journey forward.”

Masner oversees the internal operations of the Beach athletics department, including compliance, sports medicine, and the strength and conditioning program. She is also the sport supervisor for 10 programs at The Beach.
