Purdue Athletics mourns retired administrator

A former Purdue athlete and long-time athletics administrator has died.

Roger Blalock passed away Monday at the age of 65.

He recently retired as senior associate athletics director at Purdue. He held that job since June, 2004 – overseeing seven sports programs, including softball, volleyball and wrestling.

Blalock played basketball for Purdue and received a bachelor’s degree in 1969.

He worked at Eastern Michigan University for two-years, but spent most of his career at Purdue in various positions.

Blalock is survived by his wife and a son. Funeral arrangements are pending.
