Spartanburg, S.C. – The University of South Carolina Upstate officially introduced Daniel Feig as its new Director of Athletics/Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics during a press conference on Tuesday morning in the lobby of the G.B. Hodge Center. Feig will begin his duties on June 18, 2018.

Feig comes to USC Upstate from Southern Miss, where he served as Executive Associate Athletic Director, assisting with the day-to-day management and administration of all aspects of the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. Among his broad responsibilities, Feig directly supervised several administrative units within the department, including the athletic compliance office, athletic academic services, the athletic training office, the strength and conditioning program, the drug testing program, and the graduate assistantship program. As a former practicing attorney, Feig also served as the Athletic Department's contract administrator and liaison to the University's General Counsel.

Feig joined Southern Miss in the fall of 2013 following two years as Director of Compliance at the University of Alabama. In his role with the Crimson Tide, Feig was responsible for designing, coordinating and administering the rules education program to all coaches and constituent groups, and he was heavily involved in the provision of rules interpretations to all sports. In addition, he was the primary compliance contact for all Alabama football academic eligibility issues, as well as the primary contact for all men's basketball compliance issues. Prior to working at Alabama, Feig served as the Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance at Arkansas State University.

Before beginning his career in collegiate athletics, Feig worked as an attorney for Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell, P.A. and Carr, Allison, P.C. in Birmingham, Alabama. Feig's practice consisted primarily of civil litigation defense. 

Feig is a 2000 Bachelor of Arts graduate of Birmingham-Southern College, where he was a member of the Men's Soccer team that earned Final Four spots in three of his playing years. He also earned a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Alabama School of Law in 2003.

Feig will reside in Spartanburg with his wife, Claudine, and their three young sons, Noah, David and Mark.
