FSU Career
Coaches & Administrators


Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1990
Although he finished his 33-year career at Florida State as a Vice President, Pat Hogan's roots were in athletics and the Seminole sport program has always been his true love. Upon his retirement he was affectionately called the University's Chief "Friend-Raiser." But people in and around could have given him that tag as early as 1952 when he first stepped onto the FSU campus as a student, taking a job as an assistant in the Sports Information Office. While Florida State's athletic program bounded from new-born to major college contender, Pat Hogan cultivated the public image and opened wide the FSU gates to a statewide press corps that for years had known only one college program. He literally set the standard for which all college SID's strive. The student-athletes, coaches, administrators and colleagues from his days in the world of sports still fondly recall his friendliness, hard work and ability in the public relations field. During his climb to the Vice Presidency he never forgot his roots in FSU sports, helping the Seminole program virtually on a daily basis with his behind-the-scenes goodwill and thoughtfulness. Pat Hogan has truly been an invaluable cog in Florida State's drive to national prominence.
