This year’s Oscars were memorable for Anthony Giacchino ’92 CLAS, who took home a statuette for Best Documentary Short Subject.

Longest-Tenured Athletic Director Mourned

Remembered as a standout Villanova quarterback who later served 19 years as the University’s Director of Athletics, Ted Aceto, PhD, ’63 CLAS, ’65 MA, died July 1, 2021. He was 82.

Aceto led the Athletic Department from 1974 until 1993. During his tenure, Villanova entered the Big East conference in 1980 and won the NCAA Men’s Basketball championship in 1985. The Men’s Indoor Track and Field team and Women’s Cross Country also won national championships in 1979 and 1989, respectively.

“In the course of nearly two decades, Dr. Aceto guided our department into the modern era of college athletics. He was instrumental in bringing Villanova into the Big East and helping the conference quickly make its mark on the national scene,” says Villanova Vice President and Director of Athletics Mark Jackson.

A student-athlete himself, Dr. Aceto attended Villanova on a football scholarship and was the Wildcats’ quarterback for the team’s appearances in the 1961 Sun Bowl and 1962 Liberty Bowl.

The Athletic Director's Conference Room in Jake Nevin Field House was renamed in honor of the Aceto family in 2019.
