USF Moving Forward Without Hesser

January 19, 2014, 10:00 PM by Matt Holsen

USF Moving Forward Without Hesser
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

After two years at the top of University of Sioux Falls athletics, Kevin Hesser is stepping down. The athletic director, who helped the Cougars transition to Division II, is moving his family to Omaha to be closer to home.

From the Cougars transition into the NSIC to landing the NCAA Division II Track Championships in 2018, Kevin Hesser made an impact at USF.

"I feel like the athletic department is in a great place and there's a lot of great things coming for USF here," Hesser said.

Originally from Lincoln, NE, Hesser is excited to be moving his family closer to home. He'll leave behind a few projects for his replacement. Provost and VP of Academic Affairs Brett Bradfield says the search is on for someone who can help raise funds for improvements to the school's sports complex at 69th and Cliff.

"We expect to have a high quality pool of candidates for the position and to be able to take a good look at some good people," Bradfield said.

From expanded locker rooms to facilities for baseball and softball and what's needed to host an NCAA championship, there's a lot to be done. Hesser, who had a hand in getting things started, says the new AD will have plenty of help.

"We need to continue to work on engaging our alumni and developing our fan base. I think we've got the people here to do it. We've got a great coaching staff," Hesser said. "And whoever comes into this position is going to have a lot of people to lean on to move forward."

Pam Gohl has been named interim athletic director. USF isn't the only Sioux Falls school searching for an AD. Augustana has been at it for weeks, following the retirement of Bill Gross.
