Michael lzzi – Executive Director

Michael Izzi has enjoyed a long, successful career as a Director of Athletics at a number of prestigious universities. At the helm of California State University at Northridge’s athletic department until 2022, before that he served as the director of intercollegiate athletics for the University of California Irvine, as well as the associate athletic director for sports administration and development at Stanford University.

A successful college athlete himself, Izzi received his bachelor’s in sociology from UCLA in 1984 and competed in track and field. He still ranks fifth all-time at UCLA in the javelin throw with a mark of 251-11 set in 1983.

Currently living and raising a family in Newport Beach, we’re excited to have Izzi at the helm and can’t wait to see where he leads SHACC in the future. Stop by and say hello next time you find yourself at the museum.
