BUCKHANNON, West Virginia – Randy Tenney has announced that he will step down as Director of Athletics for West Virginia Wesleyan College. 

“This is the right time to step away,” Tenney said. “Consultants and trustees are considering new approaches in athletics that would be implemented over the next 3 to 5 years. I believe it is best for the College to have an Athletic Director in place to see recommendations through, from beginning to end during that period.”

Tenney continued, “I want to thank all of the athletes, coaches, sports information staff, custodians, and physical plant workers that work hard every day to create the best possible environment for the Athletic Department.”

Tenney served as Athletic Director for 10 ½ years and was the Head Baseball Coach of the Bobcats for 33 years, winning six divisional championships and four conference championships in his tenure.

WVWC Interim President James Moore had this to say about Coach Tenney’s announcement. 

The College is grateful for Coach Tenney’s many years of service,” Moore said. “I’ve personally been helped by Coach Tenney during my brief time in this role, and he’s been the consummate teacher. His passion for WVWC Athletics is something that we can’t wait to celebrate. We wish him well in his next journey.”

Wesleyan’s national search for a new Athletic Director will commence this spring.
