New Coaches

Adam Hooker is the new Head Coach at Sterling (KS). Coach Hooker is no stranger to NAIA, as he both played and coached at MidAmerica Nazarene (KS).


McPherson (KS) hired long time assistant coach TJ Eskildsen as it’s new Head Coach. Coach Eskildsen is familiar with the KCAC, and should fit right in.
