POTSDAM — SUNY Potsdam announced Friday the appointment of Mark Misiak as interim athletic director.

Misiak, the Bears’ women’s soccer coach since 2011, replaces Sharief Hashim, who took a job as AD for Susquehanna University. Misiak will begin his AD responsibilities July 1 and continue to serve as women’s soccer coach.

The last two years Misiak has worked as assistant athletic director and director of compliance for Potsdam. He will continue to serve as the school’s director of compliance.

Misiak has been involved with several groups and committees on campus, including the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, the Faculty Senate and the Employee Awards Committee and Employ Assistance Program. He has served as chair for the East Region’s Division III United Soccer Coaches rankings committee.

Misiak joined Potsdam in 2010 as assistant men’s soccer coach. He has guided the women’s team to the SUNYAC playoffs each of the last three seasons, the first postseason berths for the program in its 33-year history. Misiak’s 69 coaching victories rank him first in program history.
