‘M' Club Names New Director
"This is a very exciting hire for the athletic department and the University of Minnesota ‘M' Club," Maturi said. "George is someone who will bring vision and leadership in an area that is extremely important to our overall success. We want all of our former letterwinners to feel connected to the athletic department and remain part of the Golden Gopher family. We are excited about the future and having George work with the ‘M' Club Board of Directors and our staff."
Adzick, a native of Eden Prairie, Minn., was a three-year starter for the Gopher football team from 1974-76, earning first-team All-Big Ten honors at strong safety in 1976. He was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks following his career at Minnesota and spent two years with the Seahawk organization before retiring from football. Adzick completed his degree at Minnesota in 1981, shortly after taking a job with McGraw-Hill, Inc., as an account executive. He has remained in the business world since and has worked for various companies, primarily in the area of business and software development.
"I am fortunate and honored to be named ‘M' Club Director," Adzick said. "My primary task will be to build a program that follows the exemplary qualities of U of M athletics. With over 4,000 ‘M' members worldwide, I believe our letterwinners club has a phenomenal opportunity to impact the lives of former and current student-athletes and the community as a whole."
"The ‘M' Club and its Board of Directors are extremely fortunate to have George accept the position of ‘M' Club Director," Diane Achterkirch, "M" club president, said. "We are very excited about the future of the relationship between the ‘M' Club, its Board of Directors and the Gopher athletics department. The future could not be brighter as we continue to work hard to include and recognize the thousands of Gopher letterwinners."
The "M" Club will hold its annual Hall of Fame Banquet on Thursday, Oct. 19, when 12 former Gophers will be inducted. The banquet will be held at the McNamara Alumni Center on the Minneapolis campus and will be the kickoff to Hall of Fame Weekend. Inductees will also be honored at the women's soccer match on Friday, Oct. 20, against Michigan and at the Gophers' football game versus North Dakota State University on Saturday, Oct. 21.
