In yesterday's K-State Sports Extra, I began the list of my Top 10 Favorite Sports Extra Stories of 2014. 

Letter from A.D. John Currie - December 26

Hello Wildcat Nation!

Today is an exciting day in the young history of our new women's soccer team as we announce the hiring of 12-time conference coach of the year and 265-game winner Mike Dibbini as the inaugural leader of our futbol program!  Before I tell you more about Coach Dibbini, let me offer a special thanks to the many fans (and interested prospective student-athletes!) who have sent notes of excitement and encouragement since we announced the launch of our program and began the process of identifying our new coach.

We heard from literally hundreds of coaches at all levels of collegiate and professional soccer around the country who saw the potential of K-State Soccer and wanted the opportunity to build our program.  In Mike Dibbini, we have secured a leader with tremendous integrity and energy, a passion for teaching young people the game, deep soccer roots in Kansas and California, proven championship building coaching ability, and first-hand knowledge of the advantages and special family environment of the state of Kansas.

As 2014 continues to wind down, I have found myself reflecting back to this past year of covering all of K-State Athletics' teams on a daily basis.
