Dominic Livedoti has been promoted from assistant athletic director to athletic director, according to an announcement by Don Tuski, Ph.D., president of Olivet College. He will also continue his duties as head football coach for the Comets.
"Since Dominic's tenure at Olivet, he has had tremendous success with the football team, both academically and athletically," said Tuski. "We're anticipating that what he's done for his team will transfer to his new role as athletic director."
This season, under Livedoti, the Olivet football team received the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association's automatic berth to the playoffs. The Comets shared the league title with Hope College, as both teams finished the regular season with a 6-1 MIAA record. However, Olivet secured its first-ever bid to the playoffs by virtue of a 28-25 win over the Flying Dutchmen. Overall, Livedoti has a 38-35-3 record in his eight years at head coach.
Livedoti earned a bachelor's degree from Olivet in 1965 and a master's degree from Eastern Michigan University in 1970. He resides in Charlotte with wife, Liz, who is also a 1965 Olivet graduate.
