The league had a big time NCAA official tonight--with former Northern Iowa Athletic Director Rick Hartzell working the games.

Hartzell had a successful run at UNI hiring many of the current Panther head coaches---now six years after leaving UNI----- Hartzell is a finalist for the A.D. job at Eastern Illinois.

Hartzell says excited for an opportunity to re-enter College Athletics.
"Yeah I'm ready to come back I interviewed over the weekend at Eastern Illinois it was good. I enjoyed it,  there's a lot of positives a few issues like there always are in those jobs.  I don't know anything yet I'm sure I'll find out something over the weekend.
Yes I still have a passion--the only three things I know how to do is be a dad, referee and A-D work."

Hartzell was the Northern Iowa Athletic Director from 1999 to 2008.
