As men's soccer coach, he has guided the previously winless Cardinals to a 59-56-9 record since 2007, including regional rankings and 10-win seasons in 3 of the last 4 years. In Sport Management (SM), he has been program director since 2012-13 and has led several significant changes to the major's curriculum as well as spearheading the development of the new SM minor.  His work as advisor to the Sport Management Association (SMA) led to a number of high profile jobs and internships for students including leading a group of students to intern Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. After serving for many years as a tournament director for the IHSA boys' and girl's soccer tournaments as well as DOC of Castle AC youth soccer club, Klosterman currently serves on the NCAA's prestigious Men's Soccer Committee for D3, helping to shape and organize the NCAA Soccer Tournament.

Klosterman came to the College after five years as instructor of exercise science and head men's and women's coach at Buena Vista University (Iowa), where he recorded the highest win total and highest winning percentage in school history with the soccer team. His men's soccer teams qualified for the conference postseason tournament in each of his last four years at the helm. Klosterman coached 19 all-conference players (men and women), 32 Academic All-Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) honorees, eight College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District award-winners, and three CoSIDA Academic All-Americans.

Klosterman joined Buena Vista after being an assistant coach at Loras College and head coach of high school teams at Dubuque Senior High School in Dubuque, Iowa and Colegio Santa Fransisca Romana in Bogota, Colombia. A native of Dubuque, Klosterman was captain of his squads at Dubuque Senior High School and Loras College.
