Release Date Friday, September 27, 2013

RAPID CITY, S.D. (Sept. 27, 2013) - The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology will resume its search for a new athletic director next spring during the more traditional hiring cycle, following an unsuccessful late summer/early fall search.

Tiffany McCampbell and Michael Gunn, Ph.D., will serve as co-interim athletic directors until a permanent athletic director is hired. McCampbell is head volleyball coach and senior women's administrator/assistant athletic director. Gunn is associate provost for academic affairs and enrollment management.

The new athletic director will replace Dick Kaiser, who left July 31, for a position at Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, Okla., to be closer to family.
