TOMS RIVER, NJ - Ocean County College Athletic Director, AJ Trump, will be ending his 13 year tenure in the athletic department effective July 1, 2016 for a new position on campus as Interim Director of Enrollment Management. Trump began his Ocean County College career in 2003 as an Assistant Women's Soccer Coach, became the Assistant Athletic Director in 2007 before being named Athletic Director in 2012.  "I am both excited and sad to see my time in athletics come to an end," states Trump.  "Personally, the many connections I've been able to make with students, coaches, administrators, and professional colleagues was one of the greatest parts of being in the position I was in helping to shape me into who I am.  Viking Athletics will always hold a special place in my heart.  I am excited to begin my new role applying the knowledge and values I've learned the past 13 years in collegiate athletics as the Interim Director of Enrollment Management and look forward to continuing to support our mission of making Ocean County College an institution of distinction." Executive Director of Judicial Affairs & Athletics, Ilene Cohen,   stated, "I have enjoyed working together with AJ the past several years. We have been through so many of OCC wins and losses as a team and I will truly miss him by my side at each event. Along with many, I wish him success and happiness in his journey to someday be a college president."

  AJ over the years has made a huge impact on committees for the Garden State Athletic Conference, Region XIX, Coaches Associations and has been a driving force behind so much of the OCC athletic department's success.  He was instrumental in Ocean County College earning a 3-year bid to host the NJCAA women's soccer national championships, the designer of the new OCC athletics website, and the mentor for so many student-athletes, coaches and department staff members.  "AJ Trump is great leader, a great communicator and someone whom all should try and emulate," states Athletic Trainer-Coordinator Scott Royer.   His dedication to the students of Ocean County College is unmatched.   I feel privileged to have worked with him and appreciate all he has taught me."

On behalf of the students and the entire athletics community, we wish AJ the best of luck in this new position and we thank him for all the hard work, dedication, and leadership he has brought to the OCC Viking family for so many years.
