Mark Jurich, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development, is in his fifth year in athletics administration at UofL.

Jurch had served three years as Associate Athletic Director for Development and another as Assistant Athletic Director for Development. He oversees the development office and is the sport administrator for the Cardinals' baseball, softball and men's and women's golf programs.

Jurich is leading a $45 million capital campaign which includes expansions for baseball and softball facilities, an expansion of the football weight room, and a new soccer stadium and academic center. Jurich's fundraising efforts helped the Cardinals obtain the $5 million lead gift for the Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium for soccer. Jurich successfully sought $4 million to fund an expansion of Jim Patterson Stadium, which was completed in 2013. He helped secure a partnership with Makers Mark for a half million dollar gift toward a new academic center on the UofL campus.

Jurich joined the Cards' athletic staff in 2008 after playing five seasons of professional baseball (2004-08) with the Atlanta Braves, which selected him in the 13th round of the MLB Draft. A two-time All-American as an outfielder for UofL, Jurich was twice selected first team All-Conference USA and was named to the C-USA All-Decade Team spanning 1995 to 2005. He earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from UofL in 2004.

He was the first Louisville player to compete for the USA National Team, which won a silver medal at the 2002 FISU World University Baseball Championship and capturing the 2002 Haarlem Baseball Week Championship.

He and his wife Lainey have two sons, Jay Ryan and Thomas Jack.
