Dalton Christopher joined CU Harrodsburg Athletics in its inception in 2017. In his first role with the Pioneers, Christopher served as an Assistant Coach for the program's first men's basketball team. Shortly after the 2017-2018 campaign came to a close, Christopher joined the Athletic Department as an Athletic Enrollment Specialist, working with coaches through the enrollment processes of student athletes and assisting in certifying eligibility. Christopher would also return for the 2018-2019 season as an assistant coach for the first season of men's basketball as members of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). During his second season with the then Tigers, Christopher orchestrated the first Division I NCAA contests for the program, securing extended national visibility and opportunity for growth for the program. The Pioneers have competed in four NCAA Division I contests in their two seasons of varsity competition.
In December of 2018 Christopher was named Director of Athletics for CU Harrodsburg.
During the summer of 2019, Christopher helped create and develop the additions of cheerleading, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's golf and cross country for the 2019-2020 season. CU Harrodsburg would take another step forward and become a dual member of two conferences as the Pioneers would join the National Christian College Athletics Association in the summer of 2019.
In August of 2019, the athletic department oversaw the transition from Tigers to Pioneers during the rebranding of CU Harrodsburg's athletic department, giving a nod to the rich tradition of the Pioneer in Harrodsburg and Mercer County, while also recognizing the pioneering efforts and achievements of the young athletic program.
Before serving at CU Harrodsburg, Christopher worked within the athletic department at the University of Kentucky from 2013-2018 as a member of the media operations team for football, men's basketball and women's basketball. Christopher would earn a B.A. from the University of Kentucky in 2018, majoring in Journalism with a minor in Digital Media.
Christopher, a native of Mercer County, graduated from Mercer County High School in 2012.
