Northern State track and field coaches Jim and Brenda Fuller are leaving after 24 years with the Wolves.
The Fullers have accepted positions at Central College in Pella, Iowa.
“There is never a good time to leave a program that you have made your life’s work,” said Jim, “but the opportunities to be around family, to start a subtle change in our careers and still have the opportunity to be on the track with kids every day, and to move to a smaller liberal arts college — which is the background we both came from — made this seem like the best time we might find.”
Jim’s new position will be as an associate head track and field coach. He will also serve as an instructor in Central’s exercise science department and will also have some administrative responsibilities. Brenda will also continue to coach the throwing events at Central like she did at NSU, with other duties yet to be finalized.
