NHTI Welcomes New Athletics Director

Ed Winters at NHTICONCORD – NHTI is pleased to announce the appointment of Ed Winters as new NHTI Athletics Director.

As NHTI’s new athletics director, Winters plans to build on the legacy of Paul Hogan, who retired this summer after more than 20 years as NHTI’s athletics director and men’s basketball coach. Winters’ plans include a strong focus on student success, initiatives to monitor recruitment efforts, the cultivation of relationships with NHTI alumni, boosted relationships with NHTI’s Marketing and Student Affairs departments, and offering a friendly face to the Athletics Department, which often serves as the front door for students looking to enroll at NHTI.

“We are thrilled to welcome Ed Winters to NHTI,” says Deb Smith, NHTI director of Wellness and Recreation. “His experience places him in a valuable position of continued growth for our department and new ideas for the future.”

Winters comes to NHTI more than a decade of experience working with student athletes as part of the Athletics Department at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH. Within his tenure there, he served as assistant director of Athletics and assistant director of Recreational Sports, plus served roles facilitating game day operations. He is also in a unique position to understand the legacy of athletics at NHTI as his sister, Shelley Winters, is a member of the NHTI Athletics Hall of Fame for her efforts as women’s basketball coach.

Winters also served as Parks and Recreation director in Enfield, NH; assistant men’s basketball coach at Colby-Sawyer, and executive director of Tilton-Northfield’s Recreation Department. He is a member of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, is on the Registry of Collegiate Recreational Sports Professionals, and is certified in first aid, CPR, and AED. Winters earned his M.S. in Sport Management from California University of Pennsylvania in 2008 and his B.S. in Sport Management from SNHU in 2000.

“Ed is a wonderful addition to NHTI, and we look forward to welcoming him,” says Dr. Mark Rubinstein, NHTI’s interim president and Chancellor of the Community College System of New Hampshire, of which NHTI is one of seven sister colleges. “His dedication to the academic success and personal growth of student athletes reflects the continuation of an important commitment at NHTI.”

Winters will begin his new role at NHTI on Nov. 21. For additional information on the Athletics department or its programs, email
