Ross Webskowski wears another hat. He also serves as the associate athletic director for Internal Operations. In his role as the associate athletic director, he manages the athletic departments budget and also helps solve problems for other coaches and members of the athletic department.

“It’s a good mix to be able to do that and do coaching,” Webskowski said. “I just really like to be involved with all the different aspects.”

Webskowski chose a career in coaching to have an impact on the youth and help guide them on their journey to become better people.
