Glenn Toth, who has served the athletic department as an administrator for more than 35 years, enters his 16th year in charge of the UCLA men's and women's tennis programs. He is in his fifth year overseeing the men's volleyball team, the men's and women's cross-country teams, and the men's and women's track & field teams. In addition to his role as a sports supervisor, Toth has also seen duty as an assistant coach, and serves as a member of athletic director Dan Guerrero's senior staff.
A senior associate athletic director with a variety of responsibilities, Toth serves as the liaison with shoe and apparel sponsor adidas, having orchestrated both the original 1999 agreement renewals in 2004 and 2010. adidas supplies all Bruin teams, and represents the department's most lucrative sponsorship. In addition, Toth was point person on the negotiation with International Sports Properties (ISP) which now handles the department's corporate relations, media rights, program printing, web page, ad sales, and sponsor promotions.
Toth also has administrative responsibility for the athletic equipment room which designs, outfits, and maintains all of the Bruins' uniforms, practice, and playing equipment. In addition, the sports medicine area/athletic training room, which provides injury evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, therapy, and nutritional services to over 700 student-athletes falls under Toth's supervision, as does the sports performance area and its seven full-time strength coaches.
Toth graduated from UCLA in 1976 with a degree in economics. From 1978-84, he supervised the management of home athletic events, team travel, and athletic insurance. In 1982, Toth handled the logistics of UCLA's move to the Rose Bowl and at the same time became the athletic department's first marketing director. Promoted to Associate Athletic Director in 1984, he was credited with several award-winning football marketing campaigns and the creation of the department's corporate relations program.
An avid hiker and climber, Toth completed a personal seven-summit ambition by climbing west coast giants Whitney, Rainier, Shasta, Hood, Adams, Baker, and Jefferson. Toth serves as a Reserve Deputy with the LA County Sheriff's Department, formerly in patrol and now in search & recovery. His golden retrievers are Misty and Dottie.
