SCSU Sports Info Director to Retire After 40 Years
South Carolina State University today confirmed that longtime sports information director Bill Hamilton will retire from the university in June 2013. Hamilton, the only man to hold the position in school history, took the job in 1973 after graduating from South Carolina State.
“I’ve been awfully lucky to have stayed at South Carolina State 39 years,” said Hamilton in a May T&D interview. “Being the first to officially serve in the position of sports information director, I’ve certainly had an opportunity to see a lot of history as it unfolded, working with some great student-athletes, some outstanding coaches and some really top programs. So I’ve had a chance to see a lot of things unfold and I’ve tried to chronicle as much of it as I can, and I’m hoping one day to kind of put a lot of things in some type of historic way so people can have it forever.”
