For over two decades, Tony Natali has served in the Athletic Department at Bethel University. His past roles have included Head Men’s and Women’s Track Coach, Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach, and Assistant Athletic Director. Currently Tony serves as Bethel’s Athletic Director, a role years in the making and one that Tony loves and excels in. He oversees 24 sports teams, a team of coaches and hundreds of students.
As a National Championship winning coach multiple times, Tony strives for excellence in all he does and brings out the best in those around him. However, Tony is quick to admit that winning in life is far more important than earning a National Championship ring or banner; this drives him to be a mentor and coach to students off the track, field or court.
Tony was inducted into the NCCAA Hall of Fame in 2018 and has been recognized for his many achievements in our league, regionally and nationally.
Tony and his wife, Andrea, have been married for 35 years, and they have two adult children.
