USF athletics and those associated with it were shaken by the news that Mike Radomski, the USF Athletics Assistant Director of Communications, died in a car accident on I-75 at 1 a.m. on Thursday.
Radomski, 29, constantly had a smile and positive attitude that radiated onto anybody he spoke to.
A graduate of Quinnipiac University, Radomski worked at the University of Evansville as a play-by-play announcer and sports information director before coming to USF in 2015. At USF, he was the media contact for baseball and volleyball when he first arrived, but was quickly promoted to be the men’s basketball contact for the 2016-17 season.
Friends and colleagues took to Twitter to share their stories and love for Radomski.
Gonna miss you buddy. You showed up to work everyday and always had this same smile. Going to miss our daily chats my friend. pic.twitter.com/epRqQYZqUD

At a loss for words. I came up in the business with Mike. No one could match his passion, kindness and charisma. Always had that smile on his face & his employers got his best every day. If you knew Mike Radomski, you're a better person because of him. RIP my friend. https://t.co/VLixJUMZ3N

I remember taking this photo for Mike & how excited he was to be working the Outback Bowl. That was him, always happy & optimistic about everything. The world lost a really, really good one today. Miss you, Domski. ❤️ #RIP pic.twitter.com/aaedNtepFG

Everyone please say a prayer for the South Florida basketball program, who lost SID Mike Radomski early Thursday morning. May God bless.
