DE PERE - St. Norbert College athletics director Tim Bald has announced several staff changes involving the school's athletics teams.

Paul and Carrie Miller will move from coaching the men's tennis team to the women's tennis team. David Minten has been named the women's golf coach, and Tripp Maher has been tabbed as the men's golf coach. Will Lund has also been named the football team's defensive coordinator.

The Miller husband-and-wife tandem replaces Kathryn Ullman, who resigned due to her leaving the area. The Millers registered a 69-72 dual-meet record leading the men's program for five seasons, including a school-record 18 wins in 2009. The Millers also served as the interim women's coaches in 2003, posting a 8-3 record.

"I am delighted that Paul and Carrie are still involved in St. Norbert tennis," Bald said. "Considering their work schedules and raising a young family, the shorter women's season is more manageable."

Minten takes over the women's golf program from men's basketball coach Gary Grzesk, and Maher the men's golf team from women's basketball coach Connie Tilley.

Minten is a member of the St. Norbert Athletics Hall of Fame, and previously served as the boys' and girls' golf coach at De Pere High School. Maher, the Director of Planned Giving at St. Norbert, was an assistant women's basketball coach under Tilley from 1979-85 and 1995-99.

"When looking to relieve additional duties from our full-time coaching staff, I was looking for individuals that would be a good fit," Bald said. "Dave and Tripp understand who and what we are about, and the student-athletes will greatly benefit from their leadership."

Lund spent the last two years as a defensive assistant at Division I University of Buffalo, working with linebackers and the defensive line. Lund, a 1997 graduate of Lawrence University, spent three years as the defensive coordinator at Carleton College and six years as an assistant coach at Colby College.
