Dr. Robert (Bob) Heiny returned to the Northern Colorado department of athletics in Sept. 2011. He was appointed as the Bears' Faculty Athletics Representative by university president Kay Norton.

A former All-Rocky Mountain Conference basketball player and Rocky Mountain Conference golf medalist at Colorado College as a junior, Heiny has been and will continue to be an integral member of Northern Colorado's athletic administrative team.
Heiny, an avid golfer, earned his master's and doctorate degrees in mathematical statistics from Colorado State University.
