Scott Noble was hired in June of 2015, and is in his 3rd year as Director of Athletics/Campus Recreation at Laramie County Community College. He is no stranger to collegiate athletics as a player, coach or an administrator.
Under Noble’s leadership, the Golden Eagles have experienced some of their best sport seasons ever. They have included 8 Conference Championships, 6 Region IX Championships, 3 NJCAA District Championships and 4 National tournament appearances with this year’s women’s soccer and volleyball finishing ranked in the top 10 in the country.
Noble also brought women’s basketball back to campus in 2016-17 after a 30 year absence, increased the Golden Eagle Club giving by more than 400%, and began the Golden Eagle Network by contracting with a local radio station to LIVE broadcast and web-stream all volleyball and basketball games. He has also started the Golden Eagle Wheels Club by getting courtesy cars donated to the athletic department.
Student recreation opportunities have also increased with the addition of the first sand volleyball court on campus, and the new Screamin’ Eagle 9 hole disc golf course winding itself through the west end of campus.
His focus on academics is also evident with the addition of the Golden Eagle Achievement Center. This new area is complete with computers and tutoring services for student/athletes giving them a place within the athletic department study. The overall departmental GPA improvement is also evident reaching the departmental goal of 3.0.
Noble began his coaching career at Independence Community College in Kansas with stops at Chadron State College and Fort Hays State University. In 1998 Noble was named District Athletic Director in Great Bend Kansas. Two years later it was on to Wichita State University as the Assistant Athletic Director of Facilities and Operations. While overseeing everyday operations at WSU, Scott was also the athletic department’s liaison for the “Roundhouse Renovation” Charles Koch Arena project, and the Cessna Stadium renovation. Scott was then hired by ATG Sports Industries as the Project Manager for the Wichita branch specializing in athletic facility design/build projects, and sport surfaces. One such project was the 2006 Louis Madrid Sports Complex on the campus of the University of Wyoming.
Noble stepped away from the private sector and college athletics, and moved to the secondary level “to be there for my family, and watch my kids compete and perform through their high school years”. He was named Director of Athletics and Head Football Coach at Rawlins County HS in Kansas. When Cheyenne South opened its doors in the fall of 2010, Noble was named the Director of Athletics. After just 2 years, Scott was named President of the Wyoming High School Activity Association’s Southeast Region, was then elected as Vice President of the Wyoming Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association in 2013, and in 2014 was nominated for Athletic Director of the Year.
Scott started his college career at Dodge City Community College in 1982. From there, he transferred to Western Illinois University where he finished his playing career earning a bachelors’ degree in Physical Education. He then accepted a graduate assistantship with Eastern Illinois University earning a masters’ degree Physical Education/Sport Administration.
