Norfolk State University football will have a strong female influence behind the scenes when the Spartans return to the gridiron this spring.
Katina Roberts was named last week as NSU’s director of football operations.
This past July, Melody Webb was named NSU athletic director, succeeding longtime AD Marty Miller.
Ms. Roberts, 44, is a graduate of Norview High School in Norfolk and Norfolk State University. She previously served as athletics travel coordinator and in the Office of Student Accounts.
“She’s a rock star,” said NSU football Coach Latrell Scott. “You name it, she does it.”
As director of football operations, Ms. Roberts will handle all of the day-to-day administrative tasks associated with the university’s football program.
“Katina is very organized and detail oriented,” Coach Scott said.
AD Webb, is a Chicago native who received her undergraduate degree from Savannah State University and master’s from Bowie State University.
NSU, along with the rest of the MEAC, has postponed football until the spring because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Spartans were 5-7 overall and 4-4 in the MEAC last fall under Coach Scott, a graduate of the former Lee-Davis High School in Hanover County and Hampton University.
NSU is 21-35 overall and 17-22 in the MEAC in Coach Scott’s five seasons as head coach.
