Before coming to Vermillion, he worked in various positions at Nebraska-Omaha, Pittsburg State (KS), North Dakota State and his alma mater, Virginia Tech. Herbster was also the athletic director at NCAA Division II Concordia-St. Paul.
The position opened in December after David Sayler took the AD job at Miami University in Ohio.
