The 2016-17 campaign marks the 23rd for Eugene Doris as Athletics Director.

Under Doris' guidance, Fairfield Athletics has flourished. The University boasts 20 varsity sports, a solid Division I standing, and a multi-million-dollar facility. The University has seen the Stags win the overall Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Commissioner's Cup four times; the men have earned the Cup three times, and the women's teams have won an impressive eight times. 

Over the years, Doris has garnered multiple awards for his skills as an athletic director. In 2004, he received the Constituent Supporter of the Year Award from the Coastal Fairfield County Convention and Visitors Bureau for his role in bringing the NCAA Women's Basketball First and Second rounds to the Webster Bank Arena. Doris was also instrumental in securing the 2006 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament Regionals, and the 2007 MAAC Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments. Fairfield also hosted the 2008 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament First and Second rounds and co-hosted the 2009 and 2011 NCAA Men's Ice Hockey East Regional. Fairfield and the MAAC will host the 2013 NCAA Women's Basketball Regional.

In 2013, Doris was presented with the Fairfield University Distinguished Faculty/Administrator Award. In 2010, he received the Division I Northeast Athletic Director of the Year Award.

Off-campus, Doris served a term as president of the ECAC, the nation's largest athletic conference, and has sat on the Division I-AA Athletic Directors Football Committee. He also serves on both regional and national committees, as well as several MAAC committees. Doris is also an adjunct faculty member at Manhattanville College.

Prior to his arrival at Fairfield in 1994, Doris was the athletics director at Marist College for five years, during which time the number of intercollegiate athletic teams grew from 14 to 20. Before that, he was an associate athletic director at Fordham University, as well as assistant basketball coach under Richard "Digger" Phelps.

He coached both basketball and baseball at Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, N.Y., and junior varsity baseball at Archbishop Molloy High School in Jamaica, N.Y. In 2007, Doris was inducted into the Catholic High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame for his contribution to the New York City-based league.

Doris holds a bachelor's degree in history and a master's degree in teaching, both from Fordham University.
