Oklahoma City University is set to honor University of Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione in April.
Castiglione will receive the Abe Lemons/Paul Hansen Award for Sports Excellence at the annual OCU Sports Spectacular dinner and auction. The event is slated for April 2 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
Oklahoma City University athletic director Jim Abbott says that with eight national championships and 60 conference titles, Castiglione's record as Oklahoma athletic director is one of "great merit."
Before joining the Sooners, Castiglione served as athletics director at Missouri.
