(New Britain, Conn./WTIC Radio) - A Connecticut native will be taking over the athletic department at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain.

University President Zulma Toro has announced the hiring of Brian Barrio.

The Old Lyme native comes to CCSU by way of the University of Nevada.  

Barrio has also worked at Pepperdine University and the University of Southern California, in addition to the America East Conference and the Ivy League.

Barrio will be charged with overseeing CCSU's athletic department which includes 16 varsity sports and nearly 400 student athletes.

His hiring is a homecoming of sorts: Barrio began his career at CCSU as an intern in 2003.

Barrio's first day on the job is August 10.
