Honor is the Highest Given in His Profession
In February 2007 Pat Ivey was named as the Assistant Athletic Director for Athletic Performance for the University of Missouri after serving the previous three years as the Director of Strength and Conditioning. In this new role he is responsible for the entire player development program for football, overseeing the development of Missouri's remaining varsity sports, as well as sports nutrition.
Upon his arrival at The University of Missouri, Ivey went right to work to further establish and sustain an already successful program. With the goals of helping each individual athlete achieve their very best and ultimately assisting every team to win conference championships in mind, Ivey shares the vision of MU Athletic Director Mike Alden of helping The University of Missouri attain the United States Sports Academy Director's Cup. The Director's Cup is an annual award given to a school based on the achievements of the entire athletic department.
Prior to his arrival at Missouri, Ivey was the Director of Strength and Conditioning at The University of Tulsa for two years (2002-2004) where he directed the efforts of all 18 sports programs.
Ivey spent time as an Assistant Director, Graduate Assistant, and defensive end at the University of Missouri over the course of nine years. As the Assistant Director of Strength and Conditioning from 2001-2002 Ivey assisted with every aspect of Tiger football player development.
Ivey lettered as a defensive end at Missouri from 1993-95. In 1995, he was the strongest athlete in the history of Missouri. Ivey was signed by the San Diego Chargers and spent two seasons on their roster. Ivey then worked as a Graduate Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at the University of Missouri while splitting time with both the Denver Broncos and the Green Bay Packers. While serving as a graduate assistant, Ivey worked with several sports including football, track and field, wrestling, and baseball.
Ivey received his undergraduate degree in 1996 in Hotel and Restaurant Management with an emphasis in nutrition and he completed his master's in health education in 2000. Ivey holds certifications from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association as well as United States Weightlifting. Ivey is married to the former Starla Green from Hannibal, Missouri and they have two daughters, Paisli and Serena.
