I'm the founding and current Director of the Master of Arts in Sport Coaching degree program at DU. I came to DU in September, 2014 to begin the program. We're housed in the Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP) because before I got here, the faculty in the Sport and Performance Psychology (SPP) program successfully proposed starting a new program in sport coaching. And voila, here we are! The SPP is led by rockstar faculty who have built a temendous international reputation for their work in applied sport and performance psychology and preparation of their students. I feel very fortunate to have arrived at DU and be able to work alongside such great colleagues and scholars in GSPP.
My longest coaching role was as a strength and conditioning (S&C) coach for the University of Tennessee Men's Athletics, from 2001-2009, where I was the head baseball S&C coach and assisted with football, and at times, tennis and cheerleading. Prior to that, I played Division III football at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio and also was a S&C coach intern with the Cleveland Indians from 1999-2001. Over the years, I've coached high school football, and a variety of youth sports including flag football, soccer, t-ball, and served as a speed coach for girls' gymnastics ages 6-16. More recently, I've started providing sport psychology consulting working with athletes and team on cardinal mental skills of performance such as arousal regulation, as well as diversity and inclusivity training.
