Print this story

Steve Card became Western’s new Athletic Director after 23 years as a top administrator in the Athletics Department.

Card had been Western’s Interim Athletic Director since May 2013, when Lynda Goodrich ('66, Special Education, Physical Education; '76, M.Ed., Physical Education) retired after 26 years in the top post. He had previously served as associate director for Business and Financial Affairs in Athletics and served as head men’s golf coach for 20 years.

Card was selected following a national search. One of his first tasks will be to conduct a comprehensive review of athletics’ strategic plan and launch a national search for an associate director for external affairs in athletics.
