Sean Johnson Hired as Athletic Director

The University of Jamestown is pleased to announce that it has named Sean Johnson as the new Athletic Director following the recent retirement of Lawrie Paulson.

Sean Johnson was selected from a highly qualified candidate pool. Johnson was previously Director of Athletics at Angelo State University in San Angelo, TX. Johnson has over 30 years of experience in university athletics. Prior to Johnson’s position as Director of Athletics at ASU, he served as Senior Director of Athletics at University of North Dakota, Associate Director of Athletics at Texas A&M, Associate Director of Athletics at New Mexico State University, and Assistant Athletics Director at University of North Texas.

Johnson will begin at the University of Jamestown on June 24th. President Robert S. Badal stated, “We are very pleased to announce that Sean Johnson will be leading the Jimmies as our new Athletic Director. Sean’s background as AD at Angelo State and his previous experience at UND as Associate Director have prepared him well for a growing athletic department at UJ. He is an exceptional individual with great leadership skills, and all of us in the Jimmie family look forward to seeing progress with facilities, team development, and a growing athletic reputation in the region.”

Johnson brings to the University of Jamestown a tremendous amount of experience in university-level athletics and he also brings civic experience to the community as he currently serves as the Board President for Big Brothers/Big Sister of San Angelo, as a board member of San Angelo Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, and on the San Angelo Sports Commission. He has brought similar experiences to each of the communities he has touched in past years.

The University of Jamestown looks forward to the contributions he will add to the Jimmie family and culture. Johnson says, “I am honored to become the Director of Athletics at the University of Jamestown. I’m very grateful to the search committee and especially to Dr. Badal and Polly Peterson for allowing our family to join the Jimmie family. I know I have big shoes to fill, but I’m looking forward to building on the legacy of Lawrie Paulson. We believe this is part of God’s plan for us and we are excited to be returning to the great state of North Dakota.”

The University of Jamestown was established in 1883 and is ranked as a top tier regional school in US News and World Report and a top Midwestern school in The Princeton Review. The school features development of the whole person through its distinctive Journey to Success experience.
