Providence College Athletics Director Bob Driscoll announced today that the Providence College Athletics Department has signed a long-term partnership with Nike, making the apparel and footwear giant the official outfitter for the Friars.

“We are excited to partner with Nike, the worldwide leader in the industry,” Driscoll said. “Nike has long been associated with the Friar men’s and women’s basketball teams and now our entire athletic department will be part of this relationship.
