Brian Mann joined Dartmouth Athletics in 2009 as Director of Football Operations and moved into the role of Assistant Athletic Director for External Relations in the fall of 2011. He works with the Associate AD for External Relations to direct the department's stewardship of athletic alumni in support of annual giving programs.

Prior to returning to Hanover, Mann worked in the marketing and business world, most recently with The Advisory Board Company in Washington, D.C. Through this company, he developed and executed strategic plans for marketing best practice research to hospitals across the country and built relationships with senior hospital executives, negotiating contracts directly with them. Mann also served as the Manager of Business Development for Tefen USA in New York for one year, establishing and managing client relationships through project management initiatives.

Mann has kept his hand in football as well, working for the New England Sports Network (NESN) as a broadcaster at FCS football games in 2007 and 2008, ranging from sideline reporter to analyst in the booth.

After graduating from Dartmouth in December 2002 with a degree in history, Mann signed on as a quarterback in the Arena Football League with the Los Angeles Avengers for four seasons, winning the Special Teams Player of the Year in 2006.

In addition, Mann got a taste of Hollywood as an actor/stunt double while in Los Angeles. He served as Adam Sandler's stunt double in the remake of "The Longest Yard," and played quarterbacks in the film "Invincible" starring Mark Wahlberg and "The Game Plan" with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Mann set the Dartmouth single-season record for passing yards with 2,913 in 2002 while completing nearly 60 percent of his passes and tossing 19 touchdowns. His 5,912 career passing yards are second on the Big Green all-time list, behind only Jay Fiedler '94 (6,684) who spent nine seasons in the NFL.
