Durham joined the University of the Sciences Athletic Department as director of athletic communications in August of 2017.

He came to USciences from Kutztown University, where he was the sports information assistant and served as the secondary contact for all 21 of the university's NCAA Division II varsity programs in 2016-17. While at Kutztown, he wrote the script for the season-ending athletics banquet and helped cover the women's soccer and men's basketball teams that reached the NCAA Tournament.   

Prior to Kutztown, Durham spent two years as the graduate assistant for athletic communications at Sacred Heart University. In addition to serving as the primary contact for 14 Division I teams during his tenure, including men's basketball, he collaborated with co-workers on the redesign of the University's new athletics website and served as producer for the department's new weekly recap show that utilized the campus' new studio. He was also the main contact for the baseball team that captured the 2015 Northeast Conference championship and earned a bid to the Fort Worth Regional hosted by TCU.

While at Sacred Heart, he received his Master of Arts in Sports Communication and Media. As part of the program he interned in the sports publicity office at Yale University, where he contributed to the marketing efforts within the office and also aided in the development of the 2015 football program.

Prior to his time at Sacred Heart, Durham served as a student-assistant in two collegiate athletic departments. He began his experience in collegiate athletics assisting with the game-day operations at Cecil College, where he earned an Associate of Arts degree in General Studies. He then began his experience in athletic communications as a sports information intern at Coker College while working towards his Bachelor of Arts in Sports Management.  

In addition to assisting within each athletic department he was also a member of the baseball team at both schools, and he participated in both the 2011 NJCAA Division II World Series and 2013 NCAA Division II World Series.
