Becvar, 51, arrived at USD after serving as the Executive Associate Athletic Director and General Manager of Aztec Sports Properties at San Diego State University since 2003. In this role, his responsibilities included overseeing the Aztecs' marketing and corporate sales efforts, along with media relations, facilities and the operations departments.
