The performance of this team is directly related to the success of the entire UAF Athletics program; poor performance by this team results in less department revenue due to lower game attendance, fewer corporate sponsorships, and less opportunity to gain national exposure through the media. This position requires a can-do attitude with strong leadership qualities.
