Search committee named for new athletic director

DeKalb * A twelve-member search committee made up of faculty, staff, students, coaches, athletes, administrators and community representatives will begin work next week on finding NIU's next Athletic Director.

NIU Vice Provost Earl "Gip" Seaver will chair the committee. Seaver says the group's first order of business * the selection of a search firm to aid in identifying top candidates for the position * will likely be accomplished next week.

In addition to Seaver, committee members include:

- Jan Rintala (faculty)
- Terry Bishop (faculty; Athletic Board)
- Craig Marcus (student)
- Tim Struthers (community representative)
- Admasu Zike (diversity advisor)
- Steve Cunningham (central administration)
- Mallory Simpson (development)
- Rob Judson (coach)
- Shantel Twiggs (coach)
- A.J. Harris (student athlete)
- Marie Zidek (student athlete)

Seaver said he and fellow committee members hope to identify NIU's next AD sometime within the next three months.

"I think all of us are very honored to serve on this important committee," said Seaver, who also served on the last AD search committee in 1994, when former athletic director Cary Groth was hired.

"I expect we'll receive a great deal of interest from some very qualified applicants, Seaver said. "The NIU athletic program has built a great reputation nationally, and coming off last year's successful football season, our profile is higher than ever."

NIU President John Peters echoed those sentiments.

"This is a great group of people with strong ties to NIU and a tremendous interest in keeping up the momentum of our program," Peters said. "I'm confident that they'll find the right person, and that the next era of Huskie athletics will be even more exciting than what we've seen so far."
