As the Director of Athletic Communications, Nadeau handles all publicity for the school’s 31 varsity athletic teams. He also manages all media requests, while maintaining day-to-day operations of the office as well as the athletic department’s website.

Since his arrival on campus in the fall of 1994, he has served as the host SID for well over 100 NESCAC, ECAC and NCAA Tournament contests or regionals. Among those tournaments were the 1995, 1997, 2002 and 2005 NCAA Men’s Hockey Championships, the 2004 and 2009 NCAA Women's Hockey Championship, as well as both the 2001 and 2013 NCAA Skiing Championships.

The school has also enjoyed some tremendous national media exposure with 14 “Faces in the Crowd” in Sports Illustrated as well as several articles in the Boston Globe and USA Today. Middlebury was also the feature of a one-page article highlighting the school’s facilities in Sports Illustrated in November of 1998, while being the feature for a Rick Reilly column in March of 2003. The Reilly column sparked a visit to campus from ESPN in September of 2003 for a SportsCenter feature. ESPN returned to campus in the fall of 2010 to update the story on an "E60" feature.

Nadeau is a past president (2014-15) for the Eastern College Athletic Conference Sports Information Directors Association (ECAC-SIDA), while he has served on numerous panels over the past several years.

In the summer of 2019, he was recognized by the organizaton with its CoSIDA 25-Year Award.

A 1994 graduate of the University of Maine, Nadeau worked for three years as a student assistant in the school’s sports information office. He also broadcasted all home and away games for the University of Maine men’s basketball team during both his junior and senior years. The games were carried on WZON Radio in Bangor, Maine, a commercial station owned by Stephen King.
