SEATTLE – Seattle University women’s basketball Director of Operations Eliot Mar has accepted a position with USA Basketball. Mar, a 2014 SU graduate, will be the Program Coordinator for the women's national team in Colorado Springs.

"Everything about Eliot-his intelligence, his work ethic, his attention to detail-are all things that will make him a great success at USA Basketball," said Carol Callan, Women's National Team Director. "We're thrilled to have Eliot with us and we're looking forward to working with him and get him incorporated on our staff."

Mar, a Seattle native and graduate of Garfield High, spent the last five years as the women’s basketball Director of Operations after serving as team manager for his last two years of undergrad.

“Eliot was invaluable to the women’s basketball program, our staff and the athletic department,” said Coach Suzy Barcomb. “He basically grew up on campus and his knowledge of the WAC and the inner workings of Seattle University were incredibly helpful to us when we first arrived three years ago. We leaned on him heavily and he did not disappoint. I’m so proud of Eliot for his willingness to expand and grow and take on this new adventure.”
