Mike Sullivan (B4) Named Bucs Offensive Coordinator

Mike Sullivan (B4) ’89 followed up the NY Giants second Super Bowl victory during his coaching tenure by becoming the new Offensive Coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“We are very fortunate to add someone like Mike Sullivan to lead our offensive coaching staff,” Bucs coach Greg Schiano said. “He is a man of character and a complete football coach who fits the kind of football team we’re building here.  His work with the Giants over the past eight seasons speaks for itself. Mike was an integral part of that team winning two Super Bowls in the last five years, and we look forward to him bringing that experience and expertise to our club.”

Now we all have a reason to cheer for the Bucs!  Read more online in this local article, or do a search on Google News for lots more.


Dr. Hon Pak (H3) Named CEO of Diversinet

Great job, Hon! Read more in this press release.

COL Jeffrey Hutchinson (B4) Receives Award

COL Jeffrey Hutchinson (B4) ’89, Chief of Adolescent Medicine at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, M.D., will receive the Medical Leadership Award during the 26th annual Black Engineer of the Year Award STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Conference Technology Career Fair and Expo.

Hutchinson oversees the direct care of more than 2,000 patients, mostly between the ages of 13 and 25, in his current post at Walter Reed. And without his strong science background, Hutchinson wouldn’t be able to do what he thoroughly enjoys doing.

“Walter Reed is a Department of Defense facility, where we treat those that are retired, about to be retired and their children,” Hutchinson said. “But people don’t realize that almost half of those currently enlisted are under 35, and that’s the group that I consult on.

“That’s the reason I even got into adolescent medicine,” Hutchinson continued. “To reach kids that are right on the cusp of becoming adults — and I also deal with kids that may have made some bad decisions — but a bad decision at 14 is much different than a lifetime of bad decisions at 45.”

Way to go, Jeff.  Read more details in the Philly Tribune’s article.
