Scott Parker has been named interim athletic director at Mayville State University, effective Dec. 15, 2017.

Parker will serve as Interim Director of Athletics until the position is filled permanently. Plans for a search are underway 

“We are happy that Scott has stepped up to fill the important role of athletic director until we are able to fill the position permanently,” said MSU President Dr. Gary Hagen. “It is good that he will have an opportunity to work together with Mike Moore for a couple of weeks to ensure a smooth transition.”
