Assistant Director of Athletics for Compliance

Sara Allard joined the USD athletic department in the fall of 2014 in the role of Assistant Director of Compliance. The following year she was promoted to Assistant Director of Athletics for Compliance and is now in her third year overseeing the department. Additionally she is the sport facilitator of men’s and women’s cross country and women’s track.

Prior to USD Allard spent two years at Cal Poly Pomona where she was the Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance and Internal Relations. She provided compliance oversight for the athletic department, university, conference and NCAA rules and regulations, as well as eligibility oversight of student-athlete practice and participation. In 2012-13 she also served as the staff advisor.

Before Cal Poly Pomona, Allard served as UC San Diego’s Assistant Athletic Director for Student Athlete Development and Compliance. Her responsibilities included serving as the primary contact for athletic scholarships and all financial aid issues, as well as monitoring various areas of recruiting and playing and practice season legislation. She also assisted with eligibility, academic advising and rules education.

Allard oversaw the coordination of programs such as the Honorary Coach Program and Triton Leadership Training and assisted with supervising Triton Athletes Council (TAC). In addition, Robinson served on the UCSD Student Affairs Diversity Working Group.

Outside her role as an assistant athletic director, Allard also was assistant coach for the UCSD softball team and helped guide the Tritons to the program's first national championship in 2011.

After joining the UCSD athletics department in the summer of 2007 as an administrative assistant and moving into roles of Assistant Compliance and Student Services Coordinator and then Compliance and Financial Aid Coordinator, Allard was named Assistant Athletic Director for Student Athlete Development and Compliance in August 2010.

Allard graduated from UC San Diego's Marshall College in 2007 with a degree in Cognitive Science, while also earning a minor in Ethnic Studies. She was a captain and four-year letter winner on the softball team and also held a position on TAC, including serving as an executive board member for two years.

Sara and her husband Clint reside in San Diego with their daughter Everly. Clint is the Associate Head Coach for the UC San Diego men's basketball team.
