Durham, N.C. - Duke Director of Athletics Joe Alleva announced on Monday the promotions of Mike Cragg, Luci Hill and David Almodova within the department along with the hiring of new promotions director Bart Smith.

Cragg, a member of the department for the past 17 years, elevates to associate director of athletics where he will continue to oversee the Duke Basketball Legacy Fund which has raised more than $27 million over the past five years. The 1986 University of Washington graduate served 10 years as the school's sports information director and the last five years as an assistant director of athletics.

"Mike has done an outstanding job since the Legacy Fund's inception and he is deserving of this opportunity," Alleva said. "We're certainly confident of his abilities and excited to see the continued growth in Mike's area."

Hill, a 1998 Duke graduate who earned an MBA from UNC-Greensboro in 2002, assumes the role of the athletic department's Business Manager. She joined the Blue Devil staff in February of 2002 as assistant business manager.

After spending two years as an intern in the sports promotions office, Almodova, a 2002 graduate of Southern Utah, is promoted to the department's Assistant Director of Promotions.

Smith comes to Duke following two years as the director of marketing at Baylor. A 2000 graduate of Baylor who served stints in the athletic departments at both Arkansas and Texas, Smith will handle the promotions efforts for Duke's 26-squad athletic department.
