Biography

Ricky Lindsay joined University of Detroit Mercy’s Marketing and Communications staff in July 2019, after spending the 2018-2019 academic year with Detroit Mercy’s Athletic Communications department.

During his time with Titan athletics, Ricky assisted in all facets of Detroit Mercy’s Athletic Communications department, including media relations efforts for its 17 Division I varsity sports. He worked closely with the men’s and women’s fencing programs as a secondary media contact, and helped promote men’s basketball student-athlete Antoine Davis’ record-setting freshman season through written, social and digital content.

Prior to joining Detroit Mercy, Ricky spent more than five years in sports journalism. He covered Old Dominion University athletics, produced features on local athletes and manned the copy desk for The Virginian-Pilot.

While studying at UM-Dearborn, Ricky led the student-run publication, The Michigan Journal, in editorial roles. He helped chronicle UM-Dearborn athletics and news, as well as University of Michigan football, during his time with The Journal.
