Assistant athletics director Brian Boulac, with 39 years of experience on the Notre Dame athletic staff as both a coach and administrator, is the general manager of the Joyce Center at Notre Dame. In that role, Boulac is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the building, including personnel management, budget management, crowd control, technical services, custodial services and special events.

Boulac has been serving as an assistant athletic director and is in his 22nd year of working in the day-to-day operation of the Notre Dame athletic department. After 13 years as a member of the Irish football coaching staff (1970-82), Boulac moved into the administrative ranks in March 1983.

He also has worked with fellow Notre Dame administrators Charmelle Green and Mike Karwoski in the student development area. Boulac previously had served as an administrator for numerous Irish teams, including men's and women's track & field/cross country, men's and women's swimming & diving, softball, hockey, volleyball, baseball and men's and women's fencing. He also served as an athletic department liaison with the admissions and financial aid departments.

Boulac spent four seasons (1989-92) as the first head coach of the Notre Dame women's softball team. During his tenure, he guided the Irish to four 30-win seasons, including Midwestern Collegiate Conference tournament titles in 1990 and 1991, and the league's regular season title in 1992. In 1989, the first varsity season for the program, he was selected as MCC Coach of the Year.

Boulac was an eight-year member of the NCAA Division I Fencing Committee and served as chairman of that committee in 1996-97. He is a member of the United States Fencing Association college and high school advisory committee.

The Olympia, Wash., native spent the last seven years of his coaching career as recruiting coordinator for the Notre Dame football program, in addition to coaching the offensive and defensive lines, receivers and special teams at different times. He also served as administrative assistant to head coach Dan Devine for two years and assistant head coach under Gerry Faust. Boulac was a member of the coaching staff for eight seasons that culminated in postseason bowl appearances, including six Irish victories (three Cotton, one Orange, one Sugar, one Gator). In addition, he was the offensive line coach on Notre Dame's 1973 and 1977 national championship teams, while also adding the recruiting coordinator title with the '77 staff.

A three-year member of the football team, Boulac earned monograms as a player at Notre Dame in 1960 and 1961. Following his graduation from the University in 1963, he had a tryout with the NFL's St. Louis Cardinals, but elected to stay on campus as a graduate assistant coach from 1963-65. He served as assistant freshman football coach in 1966-67 (also helping the 1966 varsity team win a national championship), while working toward his master's degree, which he earned in 1965.

Boulac, who spent two summers in a Peace Corps-type program (CILA) in Lima, Peru, and served 20 months in the Army Medical Service Corps on active duty, remained at Notre Dame through 1968, doing doctoral work.

Boulac earned 10 letters in high school while playing football, baseball, basketball and track, garnering all-state honors in football and basketball.

Born May 8, 1941, Boulac and his wife, Micki (a 1983 graduate of the Notre Dame Law School), have four daughters, all of whom are Notre Dame graduates: Dawn, Denise, Debbie and Dyan, three of whom (Dawn, Debbie and Dyan) earned monograms with various Irish athletic teams.
