University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Chancellor Richard Telfer announced today the appointment of Amy Edmonds as interim athletic director.
"I am pleased that Amy has agreed to step into this important leadership position," Telfer said. "She has been a key player in the success of Warhawk Athletics and I am certain she will have the support of the student-athletes and the coaching staffs as we move forward."
"It's a great honor to help our department during this transition," Edmonds said. "We have amazing coaches and staff. We're also fortunate to have wonderful campus and community support. I look forward to watching as our student-athletes continue to strive for excellence in the classroom, on the playing field and in the community. I want to thank Chancellor Telfer for this opportunity and Paul Plinske for his leadership and mentorship over the years."
As interim athletic director, Edmonds replaces Plinske who recently accepted the athletic director's position at the University of Nebraska Kearney. Edmonds has served most recently as associate athletic director of compliance and student services and senior woman administrator and has worked for UW-Whitewater since 2004.
