Augustana Names New Athletic Director
The search is over, as Augustana has named Slade Larscheid as their new athletic director.
Larscheid has big shoes to fill, as he takes over Bill Gross. Gross announced he was retiring last November, and was Augustana’s athletic director for 28 years.
Previously, Larscheid held two other jobs in South Dakota. Last year, he was the Roosevelt High School director of activities, and has spent time at South Dakota State as an associate athletic director.
University of South Dakota associate athletic director Jon Schemmel, and Arkansas Fort-Smith athletic director Dustin Smith were two other candidates for the job.
Larscheid will be announced as Augustana’s new athletic director today.
