GEORGE F. "BUDDY" SASSER ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME MEMBERS

George F. "Buddy" Sasser
Athletic Director/Honorary | Inducted October 4, 2003
The Coastal Carolina University Athletic Hall of Fame is named in honor of George F. "Buddy" Sasser, a native son of Horry County and Conway, for his significant contribution to the development and success of Chanticleer Athletics.  A graduate and football letterman at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Buddy began his career as head football coach at Conway High School where he led the Tigers to over 70 wins from 1964-1969. After successful coaching tenures at the collegiate level, Sasser joined Coastal Carolina University as Director of Athletics in 1986 and served in that capacity until 1989. During this period, he oversaw the department's transition into NCAA Division I classification and the addition of new programs including women's cross country. From 1989-1996, Sasser served as the second-ever Commissioner of the Big South Conference. He initiated the league's first television package, spearheaded conference expansion, and helped establish NCAA Tournament automatic qualification for several league sports. Sasser returned to the Coastal Carolina family in 1996 for his second stint as Director of Athletics and led the effort to establish several new programs: Women's Soccer, Women's Indoor Track and Field, and Football. The Big South Conference Commissioner's Cup is also named in Sasser's honor and is presented annually to the league's overall best athletic department. Sasser is a charter member of the Big South Conference Hall of Fame and was inducted into the Coastal Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003.
