BEMIDJI – The Bemidji State track and field and cross country teams will have new leadership next season.
Head coach Kevin Kean, who supervised both programs, is leaving the Beavers to join Tiffin University as its new head track and field coach.
Kean departs BSU after seven years at the helm of both Beaver track and field and cross country. He helped Bemidji State athletes earn nine All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference honors between the indoor and outdoor track and field programs. During his tenure at Bemidji State, the Beavers saw three program records fall in cross country, 21 in indoor track and field and 16 in outdoor track and field.
“I would love to thank the staff that I’ve worked with,” Kean said in a release. “I’ve had a few different pieces over the years. In a way, they took a chance on me when they came to work on my staff. I would also like to thank Tracy Dill for the opportunity as my first head coaching job.”
“I am excited for Kevin and want to thank him for all he has done for Bemidji State women’s track and field and cross country,” said Dill, BSU’s director of athletics, in the release. “We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Kean previously served as an assistant coach on the Tiffin track and field staff for three seasons from 2012-15.
