Pracht also focuses on improving the game day experience and established the Notre Dame Athletics Fan Council in the summer of 2015.

In the fall of 2015, Pracht was appointed to the University’s Licensing Committee consisting of 10 members representing various campus divisions.

Previously, Pracht served on the University of Arkansas Athletic Department staff since July 2010 as the associate athletic director for marketing and licensing.

In addition, Pracht was the administrator of the men's basketball program.

Prior to joining the Wichita State staff, Pracht served as the Assistant Commissioner for Marketing and Business for the Southland Conference and spent two years at Long Beach State University in the marketing department.
