BSU athletic director on way out

BEMIDJI - Longtime Bemidji State University athletic director Rick Goeb will be replaced at the end of the 2012-13 academic year.

In an email sent Monday to key supporters of Beaver athletics, BSU President Richard Hanson said the move follows a comprehensive institutional review of the athletics department, a process that outlined key priorities.

"The common theme among those priorities is a need for increased funding on several fronts: to bolster our coaching staffs, to increase the availability of scholarships for our student-athletes, and to improve our facilities," Hanson wrote.

Goeb, who was hired as BSU's first full-time athletics director in 2001, will remain in his position through the end of the school year.
