Mike Krueger, the district athletic director at Aurora Public Schools who has had an incredible level of involvement in CHSAA over the years, has accepted a job with USA Football.

Krueger has agreed to become the Director of Coaching for USA Football.

“USA Football has been absolutely amazing and I am very honored to be joining an organization who truly shares our same values, mission, and vision,” Krueger wrote in an email. “I am also excited that I will still be working with Colorado, just from a different address.”

His last day at APS will be in early June, and he will be relocating to Indianapolis, site of the USA Football headquarters.

“I feel such a sense of pride as I take this step knowing that I am from a state that is leading the way, in so many ways, to promote what is best for educationally-based athletics and activities for every child,” Krueger wrote.

Krueger has served as the chair of CHSAA’s football committee for the past few years, helping to guide the process of realignment, and the new practice and calendar schedule, among other revolutionary ideas.

In December, he received an NFHS Citation Award at the NIAAA conference. NFHS Citations are presented annually to outstanding athletic directors in recognition of contributions to interscholastic athletics at the local, state and national levels.

Krueger has also been heavily involved with the Colorado Athletic Directors Association, serving on their Executive Board, and also a two-year term as president.

Prior to joining APS in 2014, Krueger was the athletic director at Palisade.
