FREMONT, Neb. – Midland University is excited to announce the hiring of Steve Heimann as the new Associate Athletic Director. Originally, from Omaha, he returns to Nebraska with a wealth of experience in college athletics.
“We are excited to add Steve to our athletic leadership team,” said Courtney Thomsen, Midland Director of Athletics. “His experience at various levels and his understanding of college athletics, both as a former student-athlete and coach, is invaluable. I am confident he will have a positive impact on our student-athletes and coaches.”
After attending high school in the Omaha metro, Heimann played football at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. He earned his bachelor’s degree in management and master’s degree in leadership from Bellevue University before beginning his career in coaching.

I feel completely in sync with the vision here at Midland University and I am very excited to join the Warriors family.”
