AD Changes For YC
Effective Saturday, December 1, Brad Clifford will assume the position of Director of Athletics. Clifford will be the 8th athletic director in Yavapai College history. The Prescott native will replace current athletic director and dean of the sciences and health department for Yavapai College, Scott Farnsworth. Farnsworth steps aside to devote more time to his district wide position.
“Scott has been an integral part of Roughrider athletics for 20 plus years and we thank him for all that he has done for YC”, said Clifford. During his time at Yavapai College, Farnsworth has been the full-time athletic trainer, faculty member, faculty senate president and his current position of district dean.
Clifford has been at Yavapai College since 1987, as a student-athlete, assistant basketball coach, head women’s basketball coach, and most recently as pool coordinator and assistant athletic director. This change should be as seamless as it could get, due to his familiarity with the college and the department.
“It is a great opportunity for me”, commented Clifford. “I am passionate about our athletic teams here at YC and I look forward to help carry on the storied tradition of Yavapai College Athletics.”
