Northwestern State has promoted Cody Germany to be director of equipment operations, director of athletics Greg Burke announced Tuesday.
Germany served in the interim director role for six months after proving himself as a reliable student equipment manager.
“The perspective and experience that Cody has gained over the past few years has prepared him to assume the lead role for the NSU equipment operations area,” Burke said. “He has tremendous passion for NSU, in part coming from his family roots, and that will serve him well in a position that is demanding and at the same time, very important to the everyday function of our department.
“He has worked hard for this opportunity, and we are fortunate that he wants to continue to be part of the NSU athletics department.”
Germany started his student manager role in 2015 before he assumed interim manager duties early this year.
The Richland, Texas, native worked through two transition periods in which he assisted with equipment director duties.
Germany graduated with a business administration degree from NSU this spring, on the same day his grandfather finished his degree.
Germany is a member of the Athletic Equipment Managers Association.
