Charlotte, N.C. (June 1, 2021) – The Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF) has announced the addition of Miller Yoho as Director of Communications and Marketing. Best known for his management of the Duke’s Mayo Bowl social media accounts, Yoho also brings experiences that range from media relations to video production. He previously served as CSF’s Director of Communications from 2014-2016, as well as working with the organization in a variety of roles over the past five years.
“Returning to CSF is an incredible opportunity for myself and my family,” said Yoho. “I want to thank Danny Morrison and Will Pitts for their belief in me and I can’t wait to join the incredible team they have assembled.”
“Miller not only will provide CSF with a wide variety of skills and knowledge, but as someone who grew up attending our games he brings a passion for the organization’s mission and vision for the future of sports in Charlotte that is difficult to match,” said Danny Morrison, CSF’s Executive Director.
In his new role Yoho will be responsible for media relations and marketing for CSF events, working with partners and growing the brand of CSF in the Charlotte region. Yoho previously has served in positions at The Littlefield Co., Luquire, Queens University of Charlotte and managed his own social media consulting business.
Frank Kay, who previously served as Director of Communications and Marketing, and his family have relocated to Seattle, Wash. Kay will continue to work with CSF in a media relations capacity for this year’s Duke’s Mayo Classic and the 20th Annual Duke’s Mayo Bowl.
About the Charlotte Sports Foundation
The mission of the Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF), a 501(c)(3), is to provide leadership for sports-based initiatives that result in a positive impact on the economy and quality of life in the Charlotte region. CSF was created in the spring of 2013 as a combined entity of Charlotte’s two primary sports development groups, Charlotte Collegiate Football and the Charlotte Regional Sports Commission. Its origins can be traced to the vision of Charlotte civic leaders after the very successful hosting of the 1994 NCAA Men’s Final Four.
The Foundation also provides support for recruitment and operation of other local sporting events, and spearheads Charlotte’s continued growth as a preferred host for premier national and regional sporting events. CSF’s future regular season football games scheduled include: East Carolina University vs. Appalachian State University and the University of Georgia vs. Clemson University (2021), North Carolina A&T State University and North Carolina Central University (2022 & 2027), the Universities of North Carolina and South Carolina (2023), and the University of Tennessee against West Virginia University (2028).
