Coleman coached RMU's softball for 14 years

CORAOPOLIS, Pa. -- Craig Coleman, the softball coach at
Robert Morris University for 14 years, has been promoted to
athletic director.

Coleman replaces Susan Hofacre, who died of cancer Jan. 8.

Besides his coaching duties, Coleman has worked since 1988 as an
associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh
Medical School. He's also served as the attending psychiatrist at
the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic in Pittsburgh.

Coleman said the time was right for him to make a professional
change. He said he's always had a passion for athletics and for the
past 15 years has held management positions in health care.

Coleman's softball teams won five Northeast Conference
tournament championships.
