Andy CarterAndrew Carter, director of athletics at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, will leave his position at the school to accept the same position at Minot State University in North Dakota.

Carter has led Northwestern’s athletics program since June 2011.

“I want to thank President (Janet) Cunningham for her support and guidance as we grew Ranger athletics over the past five years,” Carter said. “I will always owe a debt of gratitude to the senior staff, faculty, boosters, coaches and students who have paved the way for a bright future. Alva, America is truly a special place.”

Carter led Northwestern’s effort to gain active membership in Division II.

“Five years ago when he came to Northwestern, I charged Andy with leading the school through the Division II membership process,” Cunningham said. “He accomplished that mission and has helped position us to be successful in the Great American Conference and Division II. I thank him for his work and dedication and wish him and his family the best at Minot State.”

Carter will remain at Northwestern until the end of July.
