Valley City State University (VCSU) Athletic Director B.J. Pumroy has been named Director of Athletics at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. He will begin in that role June 30, 2010. Pumroy has served as the AD at VCSU for the past three years.

VCSU president Dr. Steven Shirley said, "Viking Athletics have experienced many positive developments during the past three years, and we appreciate BJ's contributions toward those developments. I join with the entire VCSU community in wishing BJ and his family all the best in their future endeavors at Shepherd University."

In the coming days, a committee will be formed to conduct a national search to fill the position. Dr. Shirley continued, "This is an exciting time for Viking Athletics. We added men's and women's Golf in 2009, and we are adding men's and women's Cross Country and Track & Field in Fall 2010. A number of VCSU student-athletes have been recognized recently for their accomplishments both in competition and in the classroom, and we look forward to a bright future with Viking Athletics. Athletics has a rich and deep history at VCSU, and we are confident this opportunity will attract many qualified applicants for our next Director of Athletics."
