Presentation College announced today the appointment of new Athletic Director Greg Heier, the former athletic director at Doane College, in Crete Neb., since 2006, following a national search. There is no date for Heier’s official start but he will be starting his new position at PC as soon as possible.
“I am grateful that I will be joining Presentation College as athletic director,” said Heier. “The vision and dynamic leadership of Dr. Huber, the passion and talent of a dedicated and energetic coaching staff, the deep commitment of everyone at the college to providing an education of distinction to Presentation students, and the vibrancy of the Aberdeen community all made this a dream opportunity for me.”
Presentation College President Dr. Margaret A. Huber said Heier’s experience in both private education and NAIA athletics were some of the reasons for his selection.
“We are very excited about the future of Saints athletics under Greg’s direction,” said Dr. Huber. “Greg’s experience and determination will surely help PC athletics grow and reach the next level of collegiate athletics.”
Heier, who comes to Presentation College as a two-time Great Plains Athletic Conference Athletic Director of the Year, holds a Juris Doctor with Highest Distinction from the University of Nebraska College of Law, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from Doane College. Heier will direct the overall administrative and operational activities of intercollegiate athletics for Presentation College’s 10 athletic teams.
“Saints athletics has a bright future and the transition to the NAIA and the corresponding opportunity to offer athletic scholarships, a coaching staff that is second to none, a supportive administration, a first class academic experience, and all the amenities of the city of Aberdeen make the potential for Saints athletics limitless,” said Heier. “I look forward to investing all my energies into Presentation College and the Aberdeen community as we aggressively pursue an outstanding experience for our student athletes.”
Before his time as the athletic director at Doane College, Heier served as the Human Resources Director at Doane from 1998 to 2006.
