Vice President for Student Affairs and Interim Athletic Director Bob Schuchardt is pleased to announce Steve Heimann as the next head coach of the PC football program. Heimann brings over 13 years of coaching experience from nearly all levels of the game. Heimann becomes the third head coach in program history for the Saints.
"We are excited that Coach Steve Heimann will be leading our football program at Presentation," explained Schuchardt. "His experience and personality will guide our football staff and student-athletes into a program that Presentation and the Aberdeen community will be proud of."
Most recently, Heimann served as the offensive coordinator for Tabor College in Hillsboro, KS – an NAIA school in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. Heimann guided the Bluejays to a 6-4 record in his first season with the team, which included a 38-21 win against No. 22 Avila University.
"I'd like to thank President Huber and Vice President for Student Affairs Bob Schuchardt for giving me the opportunity to lead the football program at Presentation College," stated Heimann. "The college's mission statement closely aligns with my personal coaching mission and I'm truly excited to get to work with a great group of young men and the coaches here. I hope to keep the momentum going and put a team on the field, in the classroom, and in the community, that resembles principles of hard work and accountability. Go Saints!"
Before taking over as the OC at Hillsboro, Heimann was an offensive analyst at Coastal Carolina University (CCU) in Conway, SC, assisting in the coaching of the wide receivers. CCU is an NCAA Division I FBS school that participates in the Sun Belt Conference.
Prior to that, he was with the Omaha Beef of the CIF (Champions Indoor Football). Heimann started as the special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach, before becoming the head coach. That position came on the heels of his coaching with the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL, where he coached numerous former and current NFL players, including Heisman trophy winners, Troy Smith (Ohio State) and Eric Crouch (Nebraska).
Heimann also coached at Nebraska Wesleyan University (2007-2010 & 2013), Feather River College (2014) and Omaha Creighton Preparatory High school (2015).
Collegiately, Coach Heimann played defensive back for both Bethany College and The University of Nebraska-Omaha. He completed his undergraduate studies at Bellevue University, and then finished his Masters program from Bellevue as well.
Coach Heimann and his wife Rochelle, have three sons – Aiden, Alex and Cohwen.
