DAN MALASKY, LAWYER, FROM DIRT TO NFL TURF
Dan Malasky, Beta Pi ’97, played football in high school and was the kicker for Penn’s sprint football team. When sports play such an important part of your life growing up, it follows that sports may play an important role in your career.
At Penn, Dan was a member of the new member group that brought Pi Kappa Alpha back to the University and the chapter house at 3916 Spruce Street. After graduating from Penn, Dan received his J.D. from Boston University School of Law. Shortly after receiving his law degree, he became general counsel for DIRT Motor Sports (DIRT). While there, DIRT became the premier sanctioning body for dirt-truck auto racing in the United States.
Following his success at DIRT, he became general counsel for the United States Tennis Association (USTA). At USTA, he led the legal team at the annual U.S. Open tennis tournament at Flushing Meadows, New York. When USTA asked him to help in developing the largest tennis complex in the world outside Orlando, Florida, he moved his family to Florida. While still in the employ of USTA, he also took on the responsibilities and leadership as chair of the Central Florida Sports Commission, later known as the Greater Orlando Sports Commission.
In 2018, an opportunity to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL) arose. Unable to resist being employed in the sport he loved, he joined the Buccaneers and is now Chief Legal Officer there. As Chief Legal Officer, he oversees the legal side of all circumstances and situations concerning the team except player contracts.
Congratulations to brother Malasky on his successful career and achievements.
