[divide]As Doug Faulkner moves towards the position of Dean and Associate Professor, his role as Athletic Director was left open with massive shoes needing to be filled. Fortunately, Kent Krober will be returning to the Greenville Campus to become the new Athletic Director, in hopes that he will be able to fill the void left by Faulkner. Papyrus Sports Section Editor Joseph Hubbs was able to sit down with the new director and talk with him about what he sees for the future of the sports and how he feels about Greenville College as a whole.
After spending many years at East St. Louis public schools serving as a teacher and coach, this Greenville alum will be planting his feet back on campus as Athletic Director. Considering his track record with Greenville sports, this sounds like a good thing. He has previously worked in various roles at GC, from director of admissions to coaching the mens basketball team for six seasons. Not only that, but he helped lead Greenville to a 20-win season during his time as coach.
Krober hopes to drive home the sense of community on campus even more during his tenure and says “good days are ahead, and I’m just happy to be apart of it”. Make sure to watch the full interview for his thoughts of why he loves Greenville so much, what is important to him about the athletic program, and what he would do in a zombie apocalypse.
