Bobby BeersBeers Resigns as Athletic Director at Rocky Mountain College 

BILLINGS, Mar. 26 – Rocky Mountain College Athletic Director, Robert Beers, has announced that he will resign from his position at the end of the week. Beers has run the athletic program at RMC for the past five years. 

Beers has “overseen the most successful five-year period in the history of Rocky Mountain College athletics,” Vice President for Student Life, Brad Nason, said. In his five years, Beers led the College to three national championships, four winning football seasons, and national rankings across the board; two Frontier Conference George Bandy Memorial Conference All-Sport awards; and saw the Battlin’ Bears internationally recognized for their achievements both on and off the field.

The athletic director position is a very demanding and difficult job, and Beers will go on to pursue other opportunities. “To do the job right you have to be able to be fully committed,” Beers said, “the institution is in a place where a fresh face will take Rocky to the next level.”

He will be at the 2014 Athletic Awards Ceremony on April 24 and will continue to be a supporter of Rocky Mountain College athletics. “I had been given a great opportunity at RMC, the coaches have been very supportive, and our successes have been celebrated. I’ve enjoyed the camaraderie of college athletics, the support of RMC, the Frontier Conference, and the NAIA. The coaching staff is mature, and there is a great support center in Fortin.”

A national search will be undertaken immediately to fill the athletic director position.
