Doug Quint has been wearing a couple of hats at McPherson College.

He’ll continue to do so, but with a change in job description.

Quint, who has been the Bulldogs’ athletic director and men’s soccer coach, will step down from his AD post and add the title of head women’s soccer coach as he’ll oversee the entire program.

Quint will make the transition at the end of the fiscal year.

"Doug has done a fantastic job leading our men's soccer program and serving as our athletic director," McPherson College President Michael Schneider said. "His leadership in both areas has been outstanding. I am proud of his work to elevate the student-athlete experience at McPherson and feel fortunate to spend the last few years working with him."

Thus McPherson College is looking for a new athletic director.

"First off, I want to thank Michael and McPherson College for the opportunity I've had to lead this athletic department for the last five years," Quint said. "It was a great experience and every day I did the best I knew how. I have built a lot of great professional relationships in this role and will miss that. I took this job because I wanted to provide some stability in the athletic department. Now I am at the point where I believe a full-time athletic director is what is best for the college moving forward. There is just so much to balance while also being a head coach. I look forward to helping the college out in any way I can to find the next athletic department leader."

Quint has enjoyed great success as men’s soccer coach and this past season was among the best in school history. Mac was 14-4-2 and won the KCAC regular-season and Postseason Tournament titles while advancing to the NAIA National Tournament. His overall record as a men's coach is 125-88-16 and 70-30-8 in the KCAC. Since 2005 his team has won 74 percent of its KCAC matches.

Quint replaces Rob Talley as the women’s coach after he stepped down after the 2014 season.

“I look forward to getting the women's program back to their winning ways," Quint said. "It's going to be a challenge, but it is something that I am excited to take on. There is a great group of players returning that will be our foundation of success."

Quint has been the women’s head coach before (2003-2007) and was at the helm during the team’s most successful season in school history in 2007 when it went 13-6-1 overall, 7-2 in the KCACx.
