UMD has officially started their search to replace former Athletic Director Bob Nielson, who departed for Western Illinois to coach college football.

Professor Vince Magnuson, former Vice-Chancellor for Academic Administration at UMD, will be chairman of a search committee composed of student athletes, coaches, faculty, staff, and alumni..

Former Women’s Basketball Head Coach, Karen Stromme is the Interim Athletic Director and has said she is interested in the position.  She was the Assistant Athletic Director for Nielson when he was the A.D.

Stromme coached UMD basketball since the early 1990’s and wants to get the job.

Stromme said, “In the long run when you have a national search I’m just going to throw my hat in the ring if you will and there are a lot of thing I can bring.”

UMD Chancellor Dr. Lendley Black said, “I’ve been told it’s a six to eight week process and I’m optimistic that by the end of the spring that we will have a new athletic director in place.”
