NKU set to name new athletic director

Jun 24, 2013

Northern Kentucky University says it will announce its new athletic director during a press conference Wednesday afternoon. 

There are three finalists:

  • Jean Berger, senior associate athletic director at the University of Northern Iowa.
  • Ken Bothof, director of athletics at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
  • Karlton Creech, senior associate athletic director/chief of staff at the University of North Carolina.

Former NKU athletic director Scott Eaton was fired in March for having inappropriate relationships with four university employees and a student. The university also says he admitted to diverting university funds for personal reasons.
