Delta State Names a New Athletic Director

CLEVELAND, MS (Ben Caxton) — Delta State has announced the new Athletic Director will be taking the helm in 2019. University President William LaForge has tapped Statesman baseball head coach Mike Kinnison to lead the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. Kinnison, the sixth director of athletics in the school’s history, replaces Ronnie Mayers, who is retiring at the end of this year after 42 years of service to Delta State. During a Monday press conference, LaForge touted Kinnison’s commitment to the university saying he came very highly recommended by a wide array of supporters, and “bleeds Green-and-White to the core.” Since 1997, Kinnison, a 2010 inductee into the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame, has accomplished an amazing career record of 939-299-2, averaging 43 wins per season as head coach. His all-time career record, including high school, is 1,229-380-2. Kinnison earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics education in 1977 from Delta State University. He later earned a master’s degree in mathematics education from DSU in 1978.
