Mike Dibbini Mike Dibbini enters his first official season at the helm of K-State women’s soccer in the 2016 season after being hired in December of 2014 as Kansas State’s first intercollegiate women’s soccer coach. Since K-State announced its intention to begin an intercollegiate women’s soccer program in October of 2014, Dibbini has led K-State through the year and a half process of forming a program from the ground up. Prior to becoming the inaugural head coach at K-State, Dibbini built winning programs and successful studentathletes at the NCAA Division II and NAIA levels. He is a 12-time conference coach of the year who led Kansas Wesleyan and Cal Poly Pomona to 13 postseason tournament appearances and an overall career winning percentage of .750 as a collegiate head coach (265-78-25).

Cal Poly Pomona made tremendous strides in year two not only on the playing field but in the classroom as well.

Dr. Phillip P. Kerstetter, Mount Olive College President and former Kansas Wesleyan President “I am so pleased to hear about Mike’s appointment as the inaugural women’s soccer coach at Kansas State University. He did an outstanding job for us at Kansas Wesleyan. I think this is a choice that will be instrumental in moving the women’s soccer program at K-State incredibly forward and incredibly fast.” Matt Williams, former Kansas Wesleyan Athletics Director “Mike is a great guy and he has the ability to come in and build a program. He was very responsible and very respected in the community. He never complained and is a very hard working young man. He recruited very good student-athletes that fit our institution. He was very respected by all of our coaches and the players consider him as a father figure and a very good person of character. I am glad that he has this opportunity. I always thought he could be a successful Division I coach and know he wanted to come back to Kansas; his wife is from Kansas, and he will be a good fit for K-State.” Gabe Romo, former player and Associate Head Coach at Kansas Wesleyan, current Assistant Coach at K-State “Mike is my mentor. I played for him and I coached with him. He is the reason why I am where I am today in my coaching career. He is a great coach but more importantly he is a great person. Kansas State got a very strong coach who is a good leader and very underrated. Everyone that knows him personally, knows what he can do and knows that he’ll get the job done. I couldn’t be more excited for him and his family. K-State got an excellent recruiter and an excellent human being. His work ethic is very high. He cares about his school. He cares about his players. He cares about the whole department. He will make sure he is a good representative of Kansas State Athletics.”

Kathleen Benton, former player at Kansas Wesleyan (200708) “I am a California kid originally and as Mike Dibbini recruited me, I went out there (on a visit) and signed before I left. It was amazing to see the kind of environment he created. It was a culture of success on and off the field. The coaching staff was phenomenal. Anywhere he is going to end up or go, obviously at K-State now, it is going to be magic. The guy just knows himself and he knows the demographic he is in. He is so adaptable to any situation he is in. He thrives on this kind of situation, especially with an inaugural program. I can’t wait to see what he does, and creating a culture of family and success and a sense of belonging is something, especially in women’s soccer, that’s so vital to success and chemistry. I am very happy for him. He is a big family guy. He deserves everything because he has worked hard for this. As a former player and assistant coach, I am extremely happy for him.” Brian Swanson, Director of Athletics at Cal Poly Pomona “Mike Dibbini has been an outstanding coach and a great mentor for our female student-athletes. He has been an outstanding community member and he also takes great pride in the academic success of student-athletes. Although we are sorry to see him leave, Kansas State is getting an outstanding coach and person, and we wish him well. He will do an outstanding job with Kansas State Athletics.” Stephanie Duke, Associate Athletic Director and Senior Women’s Administrator at Cal Poly Pomona “Kansas State is getting a proven winner in Coach Dibbini. He is committed to building a positive culture within his team, the student-athlete experience, high achievement in the classroom, and fully supporting his colleagues and other student-athletes. He will be a great fit for K-State and the local community.”

13 A Model Intercollegiate Athletics Program • A world-class student-athlete experience. • Value to our University, community and state. • Integrity and transparency in relation to ethics, finance and NCAA compliance. • Championship athletic performances. • The best fan experience in the Big 12 Conference.

Since John Currie’s introduction as director of athletics in May 2009, K-State has experienced a tremendous turnaround, unprecedented athletic and academic accomplishments and perhaps the most successful seven-year period in department history. Driving toward the vision of a Model Intercollegiate Athletics Program, Currie’s rebuilt senior leadership team turned an inherited deficit into national acclaim as one of the NCAA’s most financially solvent programs and by August 2016 will have completed $210 million in comprehensive facility improvements benefitting all 16 Wildcat teams, including the Vanier Family Football Complex, West Stadium Center, Basketball Training Facility, Intercollegiate Rowing Facility, Mike Goss Tennis Stadium and soccer competition/football practice fields, all privately funded with zero state tax or university tuition dollars. Currie leads one of the most productive and efficient programs in the country, and his seven-year tenure has included team Big 12 Championships in football (2012), men’s basketball (2013) and baseball (2013), 16 team NCAA tournament appearances in men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and baseball, and 50 individual Big 12 and nine individual NCAA Championships. K-State student-athletes have shined academically as well, with three sports, including football, currently leading the Big 12 in APR rating and an all-sports graduation rate exceeding that of the general student body. Record attendance across all sports, including a current streak of 27 consecutive football sellouts, and careful stewardship help provide a tremendous home-field advantage for 450 Wildcat student-athletes, while adding value to the university, community and state as the only university in Kansas and one of just two dozen nationally to operate in the black without any state tax or university tuition dollars or subsidies. Athletically Currie’s tenure has been marked by across the board success including a 2015-16 year that saw K-State football participate in its sixthstraight bowl game and volleyball advance to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in five years. Highlighted by three NCAA Champions in track and field, the women’s team went on to finish tied for seventh at the NCAA Outdoor Championships and eighth at the national indoor meet while also finishing third both indoor and outdoor at this year’s Big 12 Championships. Also, a total of eight track and field student-athletes claimed a total of 12 individual Big 12 Championships in 2015-16, while Jeff Mittie’s second year at the helm of the women’s basketball program saw the Wildcats return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four years. The 2012-13 campaign was also one for the ages as K-State became just the fourth BCS school since 1998 to win league titles in football, men’s basketball and baseball the same year, while K-State has held a 52-39 record since 2009 in head-to-head competition against in-state rival KU. With the tag line of “Welcome to K-State” symbolizing the goal of providing The Best Fan Experience

in the Big 12, K-State’s marketing and fundraising efforts have been completely overhauled in Currie’s tenure. K-State supporters have pushed attendance to new heights, while more than $200 million in total gifts have been raised for K-State Athletics in Currie’s seven years. Meanwhile, history was made as Currie and his staff worked hand in hand with then-President Kirk Schulz and the KSU Foundation to secure the largest individual donation in university history, a $60 million gift benefitting various academic and athletic initiatives, while the department reached its $50 million private gifts goal for the new Vanier Football Complex in just 13 months. Currie’s award-winning Fan Experience staff, which was named the national 2014 NACMA Marketing Team of the Year, has created new ticket initiatives that have led to 36 sellout crowds since 2009 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium - named in 2016 as one of five national finalists for the prestigious SportsBusiness Journal Sports Facility of the Year award including a current streak of 27 straight. The recipient of the 2013 Bobby Dodd AD Award and a 2013 UnderArmour AD of the Year, Currie served as chair of the Big 12 ADs in 2013-14 and is a member of the NCAA Division I Administrative Cabinet. He was one of only two intercollegiate ADs named to SportsBusiness Journal’s 2011 prestigious Forty Under 40 list of national sports leaders.

K-State’s Highlights Under Currie • All programs remain above the NCAA .930 APR standard with eight teams leading the Big 12 in last two years. • In the past seven years, 137 student-athletes have earned All-American distinction, while Wildcats have won nine NCAA individual titles and 50 Big 12 titles. • Brand new facilities include the Vanier Football Complex and West Stadium Center, Basketball Training Facility, Intercollegiate Rowing Center, Mike Goss Tennis Stadium and the soccer competition/ football practice facility. • Fundraising has been completely overhauled with more than $200 million in cash contributions raised for athletics in seven years as the department has raised more money over that period than it had in the previous 48 years combined. • FY14’s cash contributions total of $46 million almost quadrupled the annual total prior to Currie’s arrival and was the third highest nationally behind Texas A&M and Michigan. • Operated with a budget surplus in each of the last seven years, allowing for annual investments and budget growth from $44 million to $73 million. • K-State donors have stepped up with 27 private gifts in excess of $1 million since fall 2009, while grassroots Ahearn Fund membership has reached all 50 states. • Implemented a complete phase-out of direct university funding as a source of revenue, enabling K-State to redirect those funds to critical academic needs. • New ticket initiatives have led to 36 football sellouts since 2009, including a streak of 27 straight heading into 2016. • Also have set new season total and average attendance records in baseball while selling a record number of season tickets for volleyball and baseball. • Hired 300-game winner Bruce Weber as the head MBB coach, who captured Big 12 Coach of the Year honors in his first season while leading the Cats to their first conference title in 30 years, while recent hires of veteran head coaches Jeff Mittie (WBB), Grant Robbins (MGolf), Ryun Godfrey (CC) and Danielle Steinberg (WTEN) have brought instant credibility and national recognition.

The Big 12 begins its 21st year in 2016-17 as it continues to promote the strength and success of one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences under the direction of fifth-year commissioner Bob Bowlsby. TCU and West Virginia joined the league on July 1, 2012 and became the Big 12’s first additions since inception, joining Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech. With 10 members, the Big 12 remains as the only autonomy conference to determine its champions in all sports directly on the field of play with a full round-robin schedule. The Conference’s hard work ethic and strong values have translated to enormous success in its first 20 years. Since it began competition in 1996-97, the league can boast of 57 NCAA team titles and 625 (through June 15) individual national championships. The Big 12 has been at the forefront in college athletics reform, specifically with student-athlete welfare issues to include cost of attendance, student-athlete time demands and strengthening its policy for concussion diagnosis and management. In 201415, the Big 12 introduced and hosted three “State of Collegiate Athletics” forums to examine the issues facing college athletics. Two were conducted in Washington, D.C and one in New York City. Panelists included respected authorities from intercollegiate athletics, university leadership and sports journalism. The third forum featured a special session comprised of student-athletes. The Big 12 continued the “State of Collegiate Athletics” forums in 2015-16 with Dallas serving as the site for a November 2015 event. The Conference had a banner year on the national stage in 2015-16. Two teams competed in 2015 College Football Playoff New Year’s Bowls for the second consecutive season. Oklahoma made the Conference’s first appearance in the CFP semifinals in 2015, the second year of the structure, while OU men’s basketball advanced to the Final Four. Other highlights included national championships by Texas men’s swimming and diving and Oklahoma women’s gymnastics and softball. National runner-up finishes were recorded by Texas volleyball, Oklahoma State wrestling, TCU equestrian, Texas men’s golf, Oklahoma men’s tennis and Oklahoma State women’s tennis. Three Big 12 squads were among the eight teams that advanced to baseball’s College World Series. The Big 12 lays claim to five Heisman Trophy winners since 1996 and has had a finalist in 12 of its seasons. Twenty-five major individual awards have been won by Big 12 student-athletes in football over the past seven campaigns. Overall, more than 4,800 student-athletes have earned All-America recognition. West Virginia soccer standout Kadeisha Buchanan earned the Hyundai Young Player Award at the 2015 World Cup while playing for her native Canada, given to the player born in 1995 or later that made the biggest impression in the competition. Through its first 20 years, the Big 12 has claimed a team national championship in 17 of the sports it sponsors. The Conference finished the BCS era ranked tied for second with seven appearances in the National Championship Game. The league has finished in the top two of women’s basketball conference RPI in nine of the last 10 years and sent at least 70 percent of its teams to postseason for the seventh-straight season. In men’s basketball, the league has had seven teams earn NCAA bids four times in the past seven years. Every coach has guided a team to the NCAA Tournament - including five that have led teams to the Final Four while seven boast career win percentages of .700 or higher. During the last 12 years a total of 36 NCAA trophies have been hoisted by Big 12 institutions, with at least one national crown won in all but one year for the Conference, including 19 consecutive seasons. The Big 12 and its member institutions are committed to a competitive environment where sportsmanship and fair play take center stage. Whether on the field, in the classroom, or within the community, the student-athletes, administrators, coaches and game officials of the Big 12 support the highest ideals in sportsmanship. National academic accolades have always been strong in the Big 12. Ty Darlington (Oklahoma) was the recipient of the 2015 William V. Campbell Trophy, known as the Academic Heisman.

Gabe Ikard (Oklahoma) was presented the NCAA Today’s Top 10 Award in January 2015. It recognizes former student-athletes for their successes on the fields and courts, in the classroom and in the community. Since 1996, the Big 12 has a total of 11 honorees for this prestigious award. In the last five seasons, eight student-athletes were recipients of the NCAA Elite 90 Award with volleyball’s Janae Hall (Kansas), men’s basketball’s C.J. Cole (Oklahoma), women’s golf’s Laura Lonardi (Baylor) and baseball’s Tyler Floyd (Texas Tech) picking up the latest honors in 2015-16. The accolade showcases individuals who have reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level, while also achieving the highest academic standard among their peers. In its short history, the Big 12 has over 600 Academic AllAmerica recipients, averaging about 30 each season. Big 12 student-athletes have shown commitment to their studies by earning numerous individual academic recognitions. Eleven times in the past 11 years a league athlete has garnered the top academic honor for their respective sport, including Frances Silva (West Virginia) for soccer and Gabe Ikard (Oklahoma) for football in 2013. The Big 12 can take pride in other stories that combine on and off the field success. In the fall of 2013, former Texas Tech track and field student-athlete Ifeatu Okafor was named the Big 12’s first NCAA Woman of the Year. Patience Knight (Texas Tech) was the recipient of the Honda Inspiration Award in 2008 while Imani McGee-Stafford (Texas) was honored in 2015. It is given to an outstanding female college athlete who overcomes adversity to excel in her sport. Oklahoma State women’s basketball was the inaugural recipient of the “Together We R” Team Award in 2012, recognizing programs that have strived to succeed in the face of adversity. Following a devastating tornado south of Oklahoma City just before the Big 12 Baseball Championship in 2013, several league baseball teams along with other student-athletes, coaches and former Conference players contributed help in a variety of ways. Plus, the Conference contributed $200,000 to the relief efforts. In the fall of 2014, Oklahoma football student-athlete Sterling Shepard and head coach Bob Stoops were honored with the Disney Sports Spirit Award while Kansas football student-athlete JaCorey Shepherd received the Lee Roy Selmon Community Spirit Award. Ty Darlington (Oklahoma) earned the 2015 Wuerffel Trophy which recognizes community service along with athletic and academic success. Competitive excellence, scholarship and sportsmanship are all equal components of the Big 12 philosophy. All-Big 12 teams and Academic All-Big 12 squads are recognized for each sport at the end of their respective seasons. At the end of each academic year, the Conference honors its top male and female student-athletes with the Big 12 Athlete of the Year and Big 12 Sportsperson of the Year awards. Institutions can also nominate student-athletes for the prestigious Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarships. A total of 381 scholars have received over $2.7 million in postgraduate financial aid through the first 20 years of the program. The Big 12 sponsors 23 sports. Men’s squads include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and wrestling. Women’s teams are fielded in basketball, cross country, equestrian, golf, gymnastics, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis and volleyball. Big 12 institutions create a league that encompasses five states and nearly 38 million people. Nearly 5,000 student-athletes from across the United States and around the World compete annually in the sports sponsored by the Conference. The Conference conducts postseason championships for 20 of its 23 sports. Each championship helps to determine teams and/or individuals that will represent the Conference in national postseason competition. In its first 20 years, the Big 12 has distributed approximately $2.6 billion to its member institutions, including a record $30.4 million per institution in 2015-16, an increase of 20 percent over the previous year. The Conference office is headquartered in Irving, Texas.
