Please join us for the Club’s October luncheon featuring Athletic Director, Chad Eisele.
Eisele comes to Hampden-Sydney from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, where he served as director of athletics for more than a decade. Eisele also served as Knox College’s head football coach for three years and as head men’s tennis coach for two years. Prior to his tenure at Knox College, Eisele served as the head football coach at Minnesota State University Moorhead and at Lake Forest College, where he was named Midwest Conference Coach of the Year in 2002. He began his career as an assistant football coach at Wayne State University.
“Chad Eisele is a terrific addition to the Hampden-Sydney community,” said President Larry Stimpert. “He brings significant experience as a coach and as a leader in developing and managing a Division III athletic program. More than a quarter of our students participate in intercollegiate athletics at Hampden-Sydney, and more than two-thirds participate in intramural and club sports. Athletics – and the lessons young men derive from athletic participation – are vital aspects of the Hampden-Sydney experience. Chad is qualified to build on Hampden-Sydney’s long and outstanding tradition of athletic competition and to strengthen every aspect of our athletic program.”
Do not miss your chance to hear Chad speak about the College’s athletic program and have a chance to engage in some informative Q&A
