Ingmire reports, “I’m excited
about the opportunity that I am taking on, to lead the Athletic Department at
Lincoln Christian University. I strongly
believe that there is great potential for all of our athletic teams to succeed
here, both off and on the court. I’m
also looking forward to taking over the men’s basketball program. There’s great tradition within the program
ranging from the days of Doc Henderson, Lynn Laughlin, Jeff Mayfield, Randy
Kirk, and Matt Clark. I’m looking
forward to carrying on and building the tradition of excellence that those
coaches have set in place.”
