( – Director of Athletics Josh Daume announced Thursday (July 6) that Ed Loeb has been promoted to Associate Athletic Director, effective immediately.

“Ed was instrumental in guiding the Athletics Department through the Spring semester in the absence of an Athletics Director,” Daume said. “He is a servant leader and has been a tremendous asset not only to our coaches and student-athletes, but to the college as a whole. This promotion is well-deserved and we are lucky to have Ed at McPherson College.”

Loeb arrived in McPherson in late January and ran the day-to-day operations in the athletic department in the spring semester. He also led the search committee for the athletic director position, and was key in hiring the cheer and dance coaches, the baseball coach, and the head men’s soccer coach.

He spent the previous 13 years as the faculty athletic representative at Southwestern College. During that time, he was responsible for certifying and regularly tracking eligibility for student-athletes both academically and athletically. He also acted as interim Athletic Director for the Moundbuilders from July to December 2021.

During his tenure at Southwestern, Loeb served on numerous committees within the NAIA, including chairman of the Council of the Faculty Athletic Representatives from 2016-19. He was also elected chair of the National Coordinating Committee and served on the National Conduct and Ethics Committee.

He has worked on multiple hiring committees for new coaches, including head football coach, inaugural baseball coach, and multiple athletic directors and sports information directors.
