Augustana Announces Hire Of Lee Taylor

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Augustana College Director of Athletics Slade Larscheid has named Lee Taylor Assistant Athletic Director for Operations. Taylor assumes many of the responsibilities previously held by Jeff Holm who was recently named Senior Associate Athletic Director for Facilities and Operations at South Dakota State University.

Taylor, who is currently an Admissions Counselor at Augustana, was also the head coach of the Roosevelt High School boys' basketball team. He will begin his duties in the athletic department on Sept. 1.

"Lee is an outstanding person who brings a strong work ethic from both coaching and administration backgrounds," Larscheid said. "We are excited to have him join our athletic department and look forward to a smooth transition. He is already familiar with the Augustana community and has established relationships throughout the Sioux Falls community which will be a great asset to our department."

Taylor led Roosevelt to a state championship this past season and has placed sixth or better in the state tournament in four straight seasons. He compiled a record of 82-40 in five seasons and led the Riders to break 13 school records, including a program best 23 wins in 2013.

"I would like to thank President Rob Oliver and Slade Larscheid for this opportunity to join what is already a strong and successful athletic program," Taylor said. "I am excited to continue working alongside great people and help build on what is already a solid foundation."

Along with his coaching duties at Roosevelt, Taylor was an admissions counselor at Augustana during the 2013-14 academic year where he was responsible for recruiting students from Northeast South Dakota, North Dakota and the Great Lakes states. Taylor was involved in traveling to schools to meet and track prospective students through the application and enrollment process.

Prior to his time at Roosevelt, Taylor was an assistant men's basketball coach at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Ill. where he was involved in all facets of development and progression of the program, including recruiting, game preparation and player development. Taylor spent the 2004-05 season at Augustana as a graduate assistant under Tom Billeter.
