Blinn College Athletic Director Richard Speas has accepted a similar position at Cowley College in Arkansas City, Kansas.
The move allows Speas, who came to Blinn in March 2011, to move closer to family. Speas’ parents live in Iowa and he also has relatives in Missouri and Nebraska.
The Buccaneers won a volleyball national championship and placed fourth in the nation in softball during Speas’ tenure.
“I would like to thank everyone at Blinn College for all their support,” Speas said. “I’m looking forward to moving closer to family, but Blinn College and the Brenham community will always hold a special place in my heart.”
Speas is expected to begin work at Cowley in July.
