Skip MolitorSkip Molitor, men’s basketball coach and a faculty member in the sport studies department for 14 years, has resigned those duties to be an assistant athletic director at Whitman.

Molitor will work with Dean Snider, athletics director, in a “position designed to enhance the student-athlete experiences through promoting team events, directing club sports and working with volunteer leaders of the newly formed W Club,” said Lori Bettison-Varga, provost and dean of the faculty.

“Last year was the 33rd year of coaching for me,” Molitor said. “While it’s something I still enjoy, I want to make the transition away from coaching (basketball) at a point in my professional life when there is still time to make a real difference with my new responsibilities.”

Those responsibilities will include coaching the women’s golf team, a program he says has “great potential for success.”
