UM Presque Isle names new Nordic Ski Coach

May 31, 2017
PRESQUE ISLE, ME – The University of Maine at Presque Isle is happy to announce the hiring of Tim Whiton as the new Head Nordic Ski Coach. The position became vacant earlier this year when Joey Bard resigned to pursue other interests.

University of Maine at Presque Isle President Ray Rice is pleased with the addition of Whiton to UMPI. "I am very pleased that Tim Whiton will be joining the coaching and admission staffs of the University. His extensive experience and success in Nordic skiing, from racing at a high level through college, to coaching top junior programs and colleges, will ensure that we can build upon our Nordic program's competitiveness and success. Tim's knowledge of Maine, its school programs from the Carrabassett Valley to Caribou, perfectly positions him in terms of recruitment and simply getting the word out to the rest of the state and New England about UMPI's outstanding opportunities for Nordic skiers. We look forward to both Tim and his wife Tara to joining the UMPI community and returning to the great state of Maine!"
