On top of his other responsibilities, Mulcahy was made the primary contact for UNM's newest intercollegiate sport, women's sand volleyball, in 2014.

Majoring in journalism with a concentration in multimedia journalism, Mulcahy has strong ties to the University of New Mexico athletic program, as his great grandfather, Harold Ignatius Mulcahy, and grandfather, Jack Mulcahy, both were lettermen for Lobos men's basketball from 1925-27 and 1952-55, respectively.
