Comings and Going


Congratulation to my friend and colleague Gary Winckler who is retiring as the Head Women’s Track Coach at University of Illinois. Gary will continue to coach his post collegiate athletes and devote more time to work designing and making western saddles.

Congratulation to Phil Lundin, another friend and great coach, who is leaving University of Minnesota to take over the Head Track and Field Coaching job at St Olaf College. He is returning to his roots at the Division III level. I know this is something that Phil has contemplated for quite some time, I was glad that he was able to do this. Minnesota’s loss is St Olaf’s gain.

Dean Benton is leaving the Leicester Tigers to return to the Brisbane Broncos in a new position as Performance Director.

These guys are three great people and professionals; I want to wish them all the best in their new endeavors. I hope that each of you along the way in your careers have the opportunity to associate with professionals like this.
