    It’s been over a year since Southern Miss hired Jon Gilbert as its athletic director on January 24, 2017. Golden Eagle athletics have been trending up since then. USM recently added beach volleyball to its repertoire and will break ground on a new indoor volleyball facility this week. Gilbert is especially proud of the USM’s performance on and off the field – The Eagles boasted a 2.94 cumulative grade-point-average this academic year.
