Ashland University Athletic Director Bill Goldring is back at the helm after a brief absence from the department.

Late in October, rumors circulated that AU Safety Services removed Goldring from Jack Miller Stadium prior to the Oct. 26 football game versus Malone, university President Dr. Fred Finks said that Goldring was no longer in charge of the athletic program, though he could not comment on the reason behind the decision.

A leadership team consisting of head football coach Lee Owens, head women’s basketball coach Sue Ramsey and assistant athletic director for media relations Al King took his place in the interim.

Then, in just a little over two months away from the university, Bill Goldring is Back as Ashland University Athletic Director.

College Ad doesn’t know how to explain this one, but in 16 years as the head of athletics at AU, Goldring has overseen the rise of one of the top athletic programs in NCAA Division II. Ashland is one of only three Division II schools to rank in the top 10 of the Learfield Sports Directors Cup, which ranks schools in order of overall athletic excellence each of the last six years.
