Joe Muller Resigns
President Don Betz says the University will conduct a nationwide search for their next athletic director.
Charlie Johnson, Vice President for University Communications at UCO, said an interim athletic director will be announced within the next couple of days.
Muller was entering his ninth year as the Athletic Director at UCO, where the university won 11 conference championships and one national championship in softball in 2013.
Under Muller’s tenure, the overall grade point average of student athletes has risen above that of the general student population.
The UCO Athletic Department has also raised a record amount of money over the past couple of years, with a brand new sports performance center set to open next fall following Chad Richison’s $10 million donation in 2015.
