Todd Wetmore has been a part of the Office of Athletics Communications for more than two decades and has overseen Liberty's Athletics Communications efforts since December 1999.
Wetmore coordinates the distribution of information for Liberty's 20-sport NCAA Division I athletics program, as well as serving as the athletics department's liaison with the media. Wetmore operates as the chief editor of the school's athletics publications and manages four full-time staff members, a graduate assistant and several student workers.
Wetmore specifically coordinates all media efforts for the Flames' football and golf programs. He has managed the publicity efforts for Liberty's seven Big South football titles and the team's appearance in the 2014 NCAA FCS Playoffs. Additionally, he has covered the Flames' golf program at seven NCAA Regionals and the team's 10th-place finish at the 2012 NCAA Men's Golf National Championship at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
Wetmore got his start in the business as a student worker in Liberty's Sports Information Office, working as the contact for the softball program. He served as Liberty's softball contact for 15 years, which included working alongside his father, Paul Wetmore, the winningest coach in Liberty's athletics department history (547 wins as head softball coach from 1994-2013).
After four years as a student worker, Wetmore joined the department's staff full time in August 1997 as an Assistant Sports Information Director. He was promoted to Sports Information Director in December 1999 and Assistant Athletics Director for Communications in July 2005. His most recent promotion came in November 2012 when he was named Associate Athletics Director for Communications.
After joining the sports information staff in 1997, Wetmore was instrumental in the creation of the athletics department's first web page. In February 2004, Wetmore finished a year-long project to completely redesign the site and helped launch LibertyFlames.com, the first official site of the athletics department.
Wetmore's work at Liberty has not gone unnoticed by his peers. During his tenure, he has played a part in 16 different publications which have received distinctive honors from College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
