Chad Broadus has returned to Central Christian College as the school’s new athletic director.
He replaces Chad Kerr, who recently resigned to accept an NCAA Division II softball coaching position in West Virginia.
Broadus’ first stint at CCC was from 2005 to 2009, as he served as head cross country coach as well as assisting with the basketball and soccer programs while also serving as an admissions counselor.
Broadus left the college in 2009 to take a job at NCRA, where he began in the utility pool and worked his way up to materials specialist.
Broadus, who grew up in the Kansas City area, was a standout soccer and basketball player for the Tri-City Christian School Crusaders. He played both sports at Northland International University in Dunbar, Wis.
After graduating from college, he worked as a teacher and coach at Elyria Christian School. He taught Elementary and High School P.E. and Junior High Boys Bible. He was an assistant varsity boys soccer and basketball coach and the head coach for the high school girls varsity soccer team.
While in college at Northland, Broadus met his wife Katie. They were married in 2000 and have four children Ezra (11), Reagan (8), Grayson (6) and Quade (2).
“Katie and I are excited about joining the staff at Central Christian College once again,” Broadus said. “We are thankful that this next chapter in our lives keeps us here in the McPherson community. We have enjoyed raising all four of our children here and we value the connections that we have made through the years.
“I am grateful to God for the opportunity to serve as CCC’s next Athletic Director. We look forward to joining forces with the coaches at Central to create an athletic department consisting of high moral character, academic excellence and great athletic performance.”
“I'm extremely excited to have Chad on our team,” said CCC Chief of Student Affairs Officer Chris Smith. “He has the skills and the temperament to lead this group of coaches and will enhance and help us define excellence as a Christian athletics program. After meeting with Chad it was clear that he possessed the qualities that the coaches expressed that were looking for in a leader.”
