Matt Koenigs has been named the athletic director at Trinity Lutheran College in Everett, school president John Reed announced Monday.
Koenigs has served the past two years as coach of the Eagles’ cross country and track and field programs.
“We are so happy that Matt is taking on a broader role at Trinity as athletic director,” Reed said in a statement. “He has done excellent work coaching and recruiting for our cross country and track and field programs, and we know he will bring the best dedication and commitment (to) his new position,”
Koenigs began his new job Monday.
Koenigs has coached cross country and track and field at Everett Community College since 2006, turning the Trojans into a regional power. The past two years he coached at Trinity Lutheran and Everett CC simultaneously.
“I will continue to coach the EvCC XC teams, but am exploring changing my role as head track and field coach at EvCC,” he said in an e-mail. “I may be a co-head coach for EvCC Track &Field this coming spring just to facilitate the ease of the transition, but no matter how that sorts out I will absolutely be continuing to coach the EvCC distance runners.”
