"We're extremely excited to welcome Chris, his wife Megan, and their children to the University of Vermont and the Catamount Athletics Family," said UVM Athletic Director Jeff Schulman upon hiring Day. "Chris brings a broad array of experiences with him to this new role and is committed to leading a program defined by academic and competitive success while providing our student-athletes a first-rate experience on and off the court."
