UW Whitewater Chancellor Richard J. Telfer today announced the hiring of Amy Edmonds as athletic director.

“Over the course of the past year, Amy Edmonds stepped in as interim athletic director and helped Warhawk Athletics continue its tradition of excellence. Seventeen of our teams made their respective national tournaments, with 10 teams scoring in the top five nationally. Our baseball, men’s basketball, gymnastics and football teams all won national championships. I believe her leadership not only on our campus but within the WIAC and the NCAA will greatly benefit Warhawk Athletics,” Telfer said.

Edmonds, a UW Whitewater alumna, was hired in 2004 by former Athletic Director Paul Plinske. She moved into the position of compliance and student services in 2007. Check out the full timeline for the UW Whitewater AD search.
