Scott Collins joined the Oakland Development staff as the Athletics Alumni Coordinator in April 2012. He will assist with development initiatives and will be charged with developing and maintaining relationships with former student-athletes that competed in the Pioneer and Golden Grizzlies eras.

Collins worked at OU as an administrative assistant for the men's and women's cross country programs for the previous two seasons. He also serves on the Hollie L. Lepley Hall of Honor Committee, along with being a member of the Hall of Honor, inducted in 2007.

A former cross country standout, Collins garnered All-GLIAC honors in 1993 and '95 after posting top-seven finishes at the league championships. He went on to qualify for the NCAA Championships in each of those seasons and became just the second All-American in program history, posting a 17th-place finish at the 1995 NCAA Championships. He is a two-time all-region and all-league honoree.

Collins resides in Rochester Hills with his wife Patricia, and their two sons Nolan and Liam.
