Mr. Reasso echoed President Miller's sentiments.
â€œI am honored, humbled and incredibly excited to be coming back to Pfeiffer University,â€ he said. â€œPfeiffer provided the platform for all the success I have had in my career; the university has a great vision and I look forward to working with administration as well as our coaches, student athletes and everyone in the Pfeiffer community to make it come true.â€
