Aaron Epstein was named Coordinator of the Golden Grizzlies Athletic Fund and V.I.P. programs in September 2011. He comes to Oakland after spending the last two years as the Director of Marketing, Business Development and Game Presentation for the Pensacola Ice Flyers of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL).

"We are excited to have Aaron join the staff," said Huth. "It will not take him long to settle into the department and establish himself in the community. Aaron's enthusiasm and passion is contagious. His knowledge of intercollegiate athletics is a benefit to us. He fully understands the mission and core values of Oakland Athletics. I'm excited to start working with Aaron, and I'm sure all of our community will be as well."

As a member of the Ice Flyers' staff, he was responsible for all marketing and promotional responsibilities for the professional hockey club, including both gameday and community promotional activities.

"I am delighted about the opportunity with Oakland Athletics and look forward to serving the department, student-athletes and Alumni," said Epstein. "The future for OU Athletics is very bright and I am honored to be a part of the continued development and mission."

In addition to his marketing and promotional duties, Epstein hosted a weekly radio show highlighting the Ice Flyers. He organized special events and functions for the team and patrons and helped establish the Seville Rotary Club, serving as the group's Sargent at Arms.

Epstein holds a master's degree in sports administration from Mississippi State University in 2008. While at MSU, he was a member of the S.P.O.R.T.S. Honor Society and was a member of the Leadership Council. Epstein graduated Cum Laude from the University of West Florida with a bachelor's degree in Hospitality, Recreation and Resort Management in 2006, where he was a PACE scholar. He also served as Student Vice President at West Florida.

At Oakland Epstein will manage the comprehensive annual giving program for the Department of Athletics. In addition, he will serve as the Director of the Basketball V.I.P. Program.
