WICHITA — The Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference is looking for a new assistant commissioner.

The KCAC announced Friday the resignation of Robert Brennecke, assistant commissioner for sports communications and operations.

He has accepted the position as assistant commissioner for strategic communications for the Sunshine State Conference (NCAA Div. II), headquartered in Melbourne, Fla.

"It is with a heavy heart that I leave the KCAC,” Brennecke said in a release on the KCAC website. “My time serving the conference and its 10-member schools has been unparalleled. I look forward to all the new challenges that await in the SSC."

 Brennecke was the first assistant commissioner in the history of the KCAC. The position was created in 2011 and designed to give considerable more attention to championships events, awards programs, sports information and marketing the conference.

"Robert has been a great resource for the conference and its member institutions,” KCAC commissioner Dr. Scott Crawford said. “His contributions in social media and other sport communications continue to be instrumental in giving the KCAC a higher level presence among intercollegiate athletic organizations both within the state and the Midwest. We wish Robert well on his career path with his new role in Florida."

Brennecke assumes his new duties with the Sunshine State Conference on Sept. 15.
