01/12/2016 05:05 PM

Steve Lochmueller is less than a year into his tenure as Eastern Kentucky University’s Athletic Director. In his time, he has already overseen multiple coaching changes, a cross country team competing for a national title, and has been forced to lead through tragedy and threats of violence.

Lochmueller has spent most of his professional career managing companies in the private sector, but is now calling on that experience and his deep Kentucky and athletic roots to oversee the Colonels athletic department. cn|2 Sports was granted a special interview with Lochmueller for an in-depth conversation about his managing philosophies, his goals for EKU athletics, and the plans for success. One of which is taking the Colonels to the FBS.
