Saying it With Numbers: Dick Lipe '77

Lipe took up duties as the university’s first full-time sports information director (SID) soon after earning his BS in Accountancy. In 1979, he added the role of statistician for Boston Celtics home-game television broadcasts.

“I basically retired from accounting on graduation day,” says Lipe, who was groomed for the SID post by its previous part-time occupant, Rich Bevilaqua. “Four years working as a student in the Athletics Office helped me learn about sports information, and that it was a career that I wanted to pursue.”
