DULUTH, MN -- The University of Minnesota-Duluth has hired a new athletic director who hails from the Bulldogs’ familiar opponent.

Forrest Karr will serve as the new Director of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Karr has served as the director of athletics at Northern Michigan University (NMU) since 2012.

There, he oversaw 18 intercollegiate programs, a national training site, and a comprehensive recreation program that services the community and student body.

Karr will oversee UMD’s athletic department and its 16 NCAA programs.

Former athletic director Josh Berlo left UMD to take a similar job at the University of Denver earlier this summer.
