Long Beach State Names Interim Athletics Director Ted Kadowaki

The562’s coverage of Long Beach State athletics for the 2022-23 season is sponsored by Marilyn Bohl.

Long Beach State President Jane Close Conoley has announced that Ted Kadowaki will serve as the interim athletics director after Andy Fee stepped down earlier this month.

Kadowaki served as LBSU’s fiscal manager 1998-2005 before moving to the university’s associate vice president of budget and administration.

“Along with the change in leadership for the department, we will also make an organizational change with Kadowaki reporting to Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Scott Apel,” Close Conoley said in an official statement. “This new reporting structure will allow for enhanced planning and expertise in supporting the program.”

LBSU will now proceed with its national search for a full time athletic director.
