Tabor College hires offensive coordinator

Steve Heimann, an offensive analyst and wide receivers coach at Coastal Carolina University in the Sun Belt Conference, will join Tabor College’s football staff as offensive coordinator.

Heimann, previously head coach of the Omaha Beef of the Champions Professional Indoor Football League, will replace Tabor graduate Billy Hickman, who left last month for a similar position at Luther College in Iowa.

“I’ve known Coach Heimann for six years, and I can’t wait for him to get here so the players can familiarize themselves with him,” head coach Mike Gardner said.

Heiman has 13 years of coaching experience, including with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

“I was initially impressed with Tabor while I was coaching at Nebraska Wesleyan University, and we played against Tabor,” Heimann said. “Since then, I have come to be very impressed with the campus-wide culture of faith and family, as well as the commitment to a nationally competitive football program.”

Heimann played for Bethany College and the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Married with three sons, he has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Bellevue University.
