Lucas Moosman: New Dean of Athletics at Sierra College
Rocklin, CA-Sierra College has named Lucas Moosman as the new Dean of Athletics and Athletic Director. Moosman will fill the vacancy left by interim AD, Roz Goldenberg. He will begin work on August 4, 2014.
Lucas is currently serving as the Associate Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Support Services at San Diego State University. His responsibilities there are oversight of all athletics student service areas for nearly 550 student-athletes including academic advising, admissions, NCAA eligibility processes, housing and food services, student rights and responsibilities, student-athlete wellness, and life skills/student-athlete affairs. Having begun his career in athletics as a football student-athlete at both the community college (Los Medanos) and Division III levels, he is passionate in his support for student-athletes. He is also delighted to be making the move to Rocklin to serve as Sierra College's new Athletic Director and Dean of Athletics.
Lucas began his college education at Los Medanos Community College and from there transferred to the University of Redlands, where he earned his Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies. From Redlands, Lucas moved to U.C. Berkeley, earning his M.A. in Education: Athletes and Academic Achievement, in 2002.
Lucas's career in athletics commenced as an Instructional Assistant/Assistant to the Athletic Director at Los Medanos from 1996 - 1998; he later served as Assistant to the Sports Information Director at University of Redlands while working on his Bachelor's degree. After earning his M.A. from U.C. Berkeley in 2002 he accepted a position with Los Medanos as their Assistant Football Coach and Part-time Physical Education Instructor; in spring 2003 he moved to Diablo Valley College (still within the Contra Costa Community College District) to serve as their Assistant Football Coach and Part-time Physical Education Instructor, a position he held until 2008. During the period from 2001 - 2008 Lucas also held a full-time position at the Cesar Chavez Student Center at U.C. Berkeley, serving as Advising Coordinator for student-athlete counseling. In 2008 Moosman was offered and accepted a position at the University of Utah Athletics Division as their Assistant Athletic director for Academic Services, a position he held until July 2012. While at the University of Utah, Lucas served as a member of the Senior Administrative Staff for Athletics and on the Athletics Strategic Planning Commission, assisting with development of their 3 - 5 year strategic plan for transition into the Pac-12 Conference. During his tenure with the University of Utah the Athletics department achieved several department records, including highest student-athlete GPA in spring 2012 (3.139), Fall 2011 (3.072) and Fall 2010 (3.069), highest team GPA for eleven sports, including Football, an 83% Graduation Success rate (2012-13), and the Pac-12 Conference's third highest departmental Academic Progress Rate (APR) for 2010, 2011, and 2012.
At San Diego State Lucas assists with the overall management of the university's Athletics department. He has established a "customer service culture" within Student Support Services, earning the trust of coaches and staff by creating a collaborative approach to supporting student-athletes. During his tenure his accomplishments include partnering with Counseling and Psychological Services on a $10,000 grant from MillerCoors to establish an Alcohol and Other Drugs Prevention Program for student-athletes, creating and directing the Student-Athlete Wellness Team, and helping Athletics achieve departmental records for the highest GPA (Fall 2012, Spring 2013, and Fall 2013) and single and multi-year APR record (2012-13).
"You will find that no one is more committed to the development of each student-athlete, the improvement of their campus experience, and integration of athletics within the campus community as a whole," Moosman wrote in seeking the Athletic Director position at Sierra. "I am committed to fostering an exceptional student-athlete experience and firmly believe in a college environment where students can excel in their academic and athletic pursuits."
Lucas, his wife, Molly, and their daughter, Emily, are excited about moving to northern California later this summer and joining Sierra College's Wolverines. We're very excited to welcome him to our Sierra family.
