KEARNEY, Neb. -- Former Bemidji State athletic director Rick Goeb is a finalist for the athletic director vacancy at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

Goeb, one of four finalists, visited the campus Monday afternoon, according to the Kearney Hub newspaper.

Nebraska-Kearney, a Division II school much like Bemidji State, is going through a transition from the Rocky Mountain Athletic Association to the more competitive Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association.

"It's always been a goal of mine that every place I've gone to, I've made it better," Goeb told the newspaper. "That's the same thing with Kearney. I look at Kearney and I say, 'You know what?, I can step in and I know I can make the situation better.'"

After 12 years as athletic director at BSU, Goeb's contract was terminated at the end of the 2012-13 school year.

The university said the other three finalists are Jean Berger of Northern Iowa, Mary Ellen Gillespie of Bowling Green State and Paul Pinske of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Goeb was the first of the four to make a campus visit.
