Dr. Nick Dunagan led the university to several significant athletics milestones. As acting chancellor in 1986, he initiated efforts to secure UT Martin's membership in the Ohio Valley Conference, and continued, in his executive vice chancellor role, to work with Chancellor Margaret Perry on both the OVC membership application and the movement from NCAA Division II to Division I.
After becoming chancellor in April 2001, he supported athletics facilities improvements, including construction of the Bob Carroll Football Building, new seating in Skyhawk Arena, and the installation of a new artificial playing surface in Hardy M. Graham Stadium. OVC championships in volleyball, women's tennis and football marked high points in the athletics program during his administration. He officially retired in July 2007, leaving a lasting legacy for UT Martin athletics.
