Indiana State’s Prettyman earns AD award
The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics announced the winners of the Under Armour AD of the Year Award on Monday, with Indiana State’s Ron Prettyman earning the award for the Central Region of the Football Championship Subdivision.
During the 2010-11 athletic season, Prettyman, who completed his sixth year at Indiana State, led the athletics department to one of its most successful seasons in recent years, including the football team’s first winning season since 1996, the men’s basketball team’s Missouri Valley Conference Tournament championship and trip to the NCAA Tournament and the men’s cross country and track teams winning the triple crown of conference titles.
Winners receive their awards during the James J. Corbett Awards Luncheon on Saturday at NACDA’s 46th annual convention.
This is the second time that Prettyman, who was hired at Indiana State on March 31, 2005, after 10 years at California State–Dominguez Hills, has earned a national award from NACDA. In 2004, Prettyman claimed the NCAA/NACDA Administrator of the Year award.
Bruce Rasmussen of Creighton gave the Missouri Valley Conference a second winner; he was named the Division I winner from the Central Region.
