A member of Pepperdine's athletics staff since 2002, Kevin Wright was promoted to Assistant Director of Athletics for Sports Medicine in August 2015.

Wright was previously named the Head Athletic Trainer in August 2009 after serving Pepperdine as an assistant athletic trainer for seven years.

Wright is a 1996 graduate of Pepperdine, having earned a degree in sports medicine with an emphasis in athletic training.

He went on to earn a master's degree in exercise and movement science from the University of Oregon in 1999. He is a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers Association.

Prior to joining Pepperdine's staff in the fall of 2002, he spent more than two years as the head athletic trainer at Christian Heritage College, an NAIA school in El Cajon, Calif.
