A native of Bay City, Michigan, Ligney has over 20 years of college athletic experience in a variety of capacities. He most recently served as interim commissioner for the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in Bay City, Michigan. Prior to that role, he served at GLIAC in various capacities including director of media relations, associate commissioner for external relations, and associate commissioner for internal relations.

Ligney attended Saginaw Valley State University, where he served as assistant men's basketball coach for four years while getting his introduction to college athletics in the sports information office. From there, he was hired in media relations at the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) before joining the GLIAC in 2000.


Former three-time Capital Athletic Conference all-star and four-time All-Academic Team member Tim Mowrer was named the first CAC Assistant Commissioner in Oct. 2013, with primary responsibility for external relations.

Mowrer, originally from near Lancaster, Pa., handles the media relations duties for the conference, with emphasis on social media and video in conjunction with the CAC website (  He also assists in many other areas and represents the conference on regional and national committees.

His collegiate administrative career began in August, 2010, as an intern in the sports information office at Johns Hopkins University, followed by two years as the Assistant Director of Communications in the athletics office at Franklin & Marshall College.

At Johns Hopkins, Mowrer served as the primary sports information contact for 10 sports, and was the host administrator for the NCAA Women’s Soccer First and Second Rounds and the Centennial Conference Women’s Basketball and Baseball Championships.

While at F&M, he handled media relations duties for 10 of the Diplomats’ 28 sports, while also overseeing a student worker staff who worked as game-day event management staff and day-to-day office staff. He assisted in the organization and implementation of multiple Centennial and NCAA postseason events, and was also instrumental in helping improve the quality of the department’s live broadcasts of its home events, including a shift to high-definition streaming.
