Denny Jerome announced today he will now focus his attention on his efforts as head coach of the Waldorf College women’s basketball team. Jerome will step aside from his joint duties as the college’s athletic director to prepare the women’s team for a stellar season.

Under Jerome, the Warriors won their first Midwest Collegiate Conference title in 2004-2005 after finishing second in 2004. Jerome was named the 2004 MCC Coach-of-the-Year. Jerome hopes to push the team to another conference title this year.

"I am encouraged by a strong returning and incoming class and am confident that we can compete at a high level," said Jerome. "I welcome the opportunity to focus on the basketball program that has always been such a big part of my life."

Jerome graduated from Waldorf College in 1970 while competing in basketball and football. He earned his bachelor’s from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., where he continued his football career and earned All-MIAC and All-Lutheran honors. He holds a master’s degree from the University of Northern Iowa.

Located in Forest City, Iowa, Waldorf is a four-year, liberal arts college that delivers engaging experiences through innovative classroom instruction. The college offers residential and online bachelor’s degree programs including business, communication, music, psychology, theater, education, fire science administration, criminal justice administration and more.
